Bennelong, Bangarra's major contemporary dance work of 2017, delves into the compelling story of an iconic Aboriginal leader who found himself caught between two cultures. A controversial figure often blurred by myth and stereotypes, Bennelong’s legacy is one that reverberates through contemporary life.

In this powerful new production, Bennelong's story is brought to life through the striking dance language of the Bangarra dance ensemble, with immersive soundscapes by Steve Francis, exquisite set design by Jake Nash, lush costumes by Jennifer Irwin and evocative lighting by Nick Schlieper.
