Rehearsing 'Responding' from Bennelong

  • Bangarra Studio Theatre, Sydney
  • Choreography, Behind the Scenes

'Responding' explores the variety of responses to soft cultural subjugation. In this image preliminary gestures of reciprocation are made through gifts of clothing. Through this scene, the audience witnesses a variety of Wangal responses to these 'cultural ideas' dressed as garments, from rejection to exploration. This section allows Bennelong's nature, his curiosity for connection, to spring into play.
