From the enigmatic waters of the Torres Strait Islands to the deeply rooted inland trees in Australia, lore draws a realistic portrayal of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. These heartfelt dance works explore themes of identity, inequality, climate change and sustainability with a hopeful and positive outlook for the future.

Artistic Director Stephen Page brought together three powerful and passionate Bangarra Artists to choreograph this double-bill: award-winning Frances Rings was joined by emerging choreographic voices Deborah Brown and Waangenga Blanco.

"lore to me is about generations: Sheoak is a symbol of past, present and future, where knowledge is passed on from old to young and I.B.I.S is a celebration of the Torres Strait Islands’ people, land and its future." - Stephen Page
