When Stephen Page discussed the idea of collaborating with David on the score for BLAK it felt like a dream come true. I had never created a dance theatre score before and knew only a little about Bangarra’s history and its creative and cultural intentions. It was a beautifully eye-opening experience.
Collaborating with David, recording with Djakpurra, and hearing the stories informing the work made me learn a lot about the rich Indigenous heritage attached to this land and its people. It opened my thinking. I was hooked.
It was a beautifully eye-opening experience.
