The Sydney Morning Herald gave Ochres 5 stars and called it "the perfect Bangarra show" while The Australian summed it up in one word: "Magic." Here's some highlights from the quartet of awe-inspiring works that form Ochres.

At NINNI's heart is Mother Earth, the mother of children and the mother of carrying our strong cultural identity. Aboriginal people believe that this country is very female so this work is based on a family story that deeply respects the mother component.

Actor Rachael Maza and Singer La-Donna Hollingsworth collaborate with Guypunura Munyarryun on traditional language and gesture to create the essence of this women’s story.

This production features the First Nations' languages Yolngu Matha (Yiritja language group - North East Arnhem Land) and Kala Kawaw Ya (Torres Strait Islands, Top Western area).
