18-19 October

Bangarra Dance Theatre, will be performing in Copenhagen

Bangarra is Australia’s pre-eminent Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts organisation and one of seven resident performing arts companies at the Sydney Opera House. The company is in its 28th year and, as many of you will know, has a national and international reputation.

Bangarra will be performing its production Spirit, which showcases the best of Bangarra’s internationally acclaimed repertoire. Set to a beautiful and haunting score composed by David Page and Steve Francis, Spirit is a lush and contemporary celebration of beauty, ritual and music. From the last breath of sunset to the first finger-light of dawn, the audience enters a mysterious and secret space to witness nature’s sacred poetry. Spirit weaves storytelling, dance, theatre and music into an unforgettable theatrical experience.

Tickets to the production may be purchased through the DR Concert Hall: http://burl.nu/ee7415

Loanable resources and Indigenous Kit

We have assembled some resources (flags, posters, books,  boomerangs, indigenous musical instruments, information booklets) which you can apply to use if you are a school, an organisation or individuals, who are studying or working with an Australian theme.

If you are a school, and you have a recurring theme about Australia, please contact us if you would like us to assist you in gathering a more permanent collection to teach about Australia.

There is a high demand for resource kits so we ask that you inform us early if you would like to borrow one.  You can borrow a resource kit for 2 weeks at a time.

Here are some examples of what we currently have in our Embassy collection, which you can borrow:

  •  DVDs
  •  CDs with Aboriginal and Australian folk songs
  •  Children's books (in English) with Aboriginal themes, books on Australian nature, culture, architecture, language and history
  •  Flags (fabric and paper), posters, pull-ups (for larger displays)
  • Small stuffed animals.
