Before time began when the land was formed and the spirits roamed free was the Dreaming. Where wet meets dry, the future folds back to the past and the Imagined is often Reality. The Dreaming is a 'Best of Bangarra' production.

To protect and respect the wealth of culture and knowledge shared with Bangarra by our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contributors and their communities, and Bangarra’s rights in its own content, you acknowledge and agree that:

Steeped in the cultural heritage of the Aboriginal people of Australia, Bangarra's 'best of' production the Dreaming combines the ancient myth and ritual of the Munyarryun Clan of Northern Australia with music and movement from the contemporary urban world to present a work of sharp beauty and contrasts. Weaving together the elemental experience of both the land and the waters, the Dreaming sets forth on a sublime emotional journey.
