From its early beginnings in the late 1980s, through the politically tumultuous 90s and into the new millennium, Bangarra Dance Theatre has grown to be one of the nation’s most revered cultural institutions, and a globally recognised powerhouse. With a distinctive theatrical voice and utterly inimitable soundscapes, music and design, Bangarra’s unique signature style also encompasses authentic storytelling, outstanding technique and deeply moving performances. Tracking the pivotal year approaching its 30th Anniversary, Firestarter tells the story of the Bangarra Dance Theatre through the eyes of their long standing and charismatic artistic director, Stephen Page. A stunning hybrid of factual and dramatic storytelling, Firestarter is a tale of pride, heartbreak, adversity and empowerment with the transformative strength of Indigenous dance at its centre.
