Exelon Family Series: Bangarra Dance Theatre
Bangarra Dance Theatre
Bangarra is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organization and one of Australia’s leading performing arts companies, widely acclaimed around the world for its powerful dancing, distinctive theatrical voice, and utterly unique soundscapes, music and design. Led by Artistic Director Stephen Page, Bangarra’s work is forged from over 65,000 years of culture, embodied with contemporary movement. Bangarra’s dancers each have a proud Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background, and each piece in the company’s repertoire draws on stories gathered from respected community elders.
The Exelon Family Series offers high-quality, engaging programming designed to cultivate the next generation of arts lovers. These hour-long performances are designed for children ages 4-12. Children will have the opportunity to meet and interact with artists following the performance. And as always, audiences are encouraged to laugh, clap, and experience the theater in their own way — no shushing allowed!
