Knowledge Ground: 30 Years of Sixty Five Thousand

Date: 26 Nov 2019

Opening from December 4, 2019, Bangarra Dance Theatre’s Knowledge Ground is a free, fully immersive installation experience celebrating Australia’s leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts company and its landmark 30th anniversary.

Accompanying the installation is a new digital platform of the same name, offering a whole new dimension of the Bangarra experience. Three years in-the-making, Knowledge Ground is an ever-evolving digital archive sharing Bangarra’s songline with online visitors around the world.

Curated by Stephen Page and Head of Design Jacob Nash, visitors to the Knowledge Ground installation can navigate a series of thematic worlds, created using unique elements from Bangarra’s productions – including set, costumes, artefacts, AV projection, language recordings and film footage of the Bangarra dancers. Each world explores the themes that are central to Bangarra’s work – Country, Language, kinship, social, history – and provide an opportunity for visitors to connect to the song, dance and stories that Bangarra have been sharing with audiences for the last 30 years.
