The world famous Bangarra Dance Theatre is ready to celebrate its 21st anniversary, with a performance of its landmark production "Ochres" at Carriageworks from Friday.
While from Wednesday evening, in the theatre just next door, Australia's talented up-and-coming performers will take centre stage as NAISDA Dance College presents its end of year show.
"As Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, we look to the natural world to inspire, regenerate and sustain us"
This year's production from NAIDSA, Kamu, takes its inspiration from the western Torres Strait Islands.
Kamu director Frances Ring says the performance intends to reflect the natural world that "regenerates and sustains us".
"It also increasingly reveals to us significant changes to our surrounding ecology."
