After traveling across four states to perform 63 shows, Bangarra’s Dark Emu national tour has come to an end. Our work would not be possible without the support of our audiences and we thank each and everyone of you that shared our journey with us. 
As we conclude our season we reflect on the spirit of resilience and hope through Alana Valentine’s closing passage: “I am the rock that holds the heat, after the sun has set. Thank you my country

I am the grain that takes the oil, after the pouring is done. Thank you my country

I am the stone soaking up water, long since retrieved from the pool. Thank you, my country

I am the spirit of country, still giving all life to the land. Thank you, my country” 📸 @daniel.boud

What a privilege to watch this tonight with @juliarabar. Amazing! Thank you @bangarradancetheatre for your beautiful performance of Dark Emu. I don’t know how you transformed literature into such rich movements. Wished everyone could watch it!

I am not Indigenous, but I am Australian. I am not connected to the millenia-old dreaming of one of the world's oldest living cultures. But when I watch  @bangarradancetheatre perform, I feel such a connection to my country, from its distant past to its recent history. No other dancers, choreography, music or staging have ever had such an emotional impact on me. Each. And. Every. Time. For all our sakes, please keep dancing and telling the stories of Country and our country. #darkemu #darkemu2018

Another amazing night seeing #bangarradancetheatre perform Dark Emu, based on Bruce Pascoe’s award-winning book ‘Dark Emu, Black Seeds: Agriculture or Accident?’ Bangarra never cease to amaze, I look forward to every September to watch them create magic on stage and share stories. 
Now to finish reading the book.... #darkemu2018 #bangarradancetheatre #brucepascoe #inspired #lovebangarra #thatapplause #standingovation #untilnexttime @bangarradancetheatre

Super excited to be seeing Dark Emu tonight by the formidable Bangarra #bangarradancetheatre #melbourneartscentre #darkemu2018
Is it too early for a #tbt if it only happened last weekend? On Saturday, @melsy_and_sarge and I had the pleasure of attending the latest creation by @bangarradancetheatre named 'Dark Emu'. It was phenomenal! In relation to the performers, the power of their movements and the strength of their expression was just breathtaking. The costumes were powerful, the set was brilliant and the soundtrack was both energising and calming. My praise to everyone involved and hopefully see another amazing performance in 2019.

“a physical and visceral dialogue between dance and text. In collaboration with the dancers, three choreographers offer a beautiful evocation of the living relationship between people and plants and the impact of colonisation.” says Australian Book Review of our powerful new work Dark Emu.

“Tonight’s experience with Bangarra is just like every other night I’ve experienced. For the last 25 years I have been following the family with my heart, my soul and vision and I’m so proud. I’m emotionally stirred to see beautiful mob on stage, expressing and being so passionate and keeping our culture alive. It's just such an honour to be here. We’re looking at royalty. As an Elder, it is an honour to come along once again and be a part of Community Night and to hear the love and support around us all. It’s just so inspiring for our young ones, we’ve got babies in arms here, so keep going and I love you.” says actor, writer and Elder Tammy Anderson of her experience of Dark Emu at our Melbourne Community Night performance, made possible by the generous support of The Balnaves Foundation. 🖤💛❤️ 📸 @libadibdib

The best part of my job is combining my passions and meeting amazing people along the way. Here I am after spending a week Pilates-ing the Bangarra Dance Theatre boys while they where in Perth performing #darkemu this time last month.

The Dark Emu scene ‘Whales of Fortune’ shares the deep history of the Yuin mob’s work with humpback whales. “There’s a story about this old man who’d dance and pretend to be lame, and he’d do some dancing in between two fires he’d set up on the beach. The killer whales would be out deep and they’d notice the man dancing between the two fires, and start feeling sorry for him. They'd know when it was humpback season, and the killer whales would feast off the humpbacks… by fatiguing and attacking and making them exhausted, they’d drive the humpbacks into Twofold’s Bay. They’d share their kill with the people there… the killer whales would eat the tongue of the humpback and then the people would share in the rest.” explains Dark Emu co-choreographer Yolande Brown to @989fmcountry. Stream Yolande’s full interview with Boe Spearim on Let’s Talk online to hear more about the Dark Emu story. 📸 @daniel.boud

"Bangarra really try to sink ourselves into the heart and the spirit of the story. The book opens with a passage about the creator spirit Baiame, encouraging people to look at the in between... The greater meaning is to have your eyes open to see what you don’t already understand." says Bangarra’s Yolande Brown of our creative response to Bruce Pascoe’s award-winning book in conversation with @abcbrisbane. Dark Emu is currently performing at @atqpac in #Brisbane until September 1, before the company heads to #Melbourne for the final season of on our national tour. 📸 @daniel.boud

Ahead of the Melbourne premiere of Dark Emu at @artscentremelbourne, our Artistic Director Stephen Page talks with @timeoutmelbourne to discuss how the work expands on Uncle Bruce Pascoe's non-fiction book and why the story needs to be told right now. "Bangarra has faced a hard struggle to attain its unique position as a national dance company in Australia and it has not achieved this by sidestepping the difficult issues. Dark Emu is an ambitious and complex work, both politically and artistically. But blackfellas don’t often have the luxury of separating the two. Page sees this work as lifting the “guilt blanket” off Australia’s consciousness, and says things have changed, with more changes in the wind right now." says Time Out Melbourne. Dark Emu is currently touring nationally, with Brisbane and Melbourne seasons still to come. Tickets are selling fast - see link in bio. 📸 @daniel.boud

Sometimes you love a performance so much, and are lucky enough to take photographs of it beforehand at a media call, you revisit the images after the performance ended and you come across loads more unedited images ... this is exactly what happened with Dark Emu, new performance by @bangarradancetheatre, after it left @canberratheatrecentre. Lucky @brisbane peeps will see them at @atqpac very soon. Don't miss this masterpiece.

Thank you @statetheatrecentre for a special sold-out season and to our audiences for supporting the powerful work we create. 📸 @daniel.boud #darkemu  #darkemu2018  #bangarra  #bangarradancetheatre  #stephenpage  #contemporarydance  #choreography  #aboriginal  #indigenousculture  #storytelling

Bangarra dancer Tara Gower recently spoke with ABC Kimberley to discuss her career as a dancer and our new major dance work Dark Emu. "It's about perspective… the title Dark Emu was taken from a star constellation and when you look at the history of astrology, non-Indigenous people look at the patterns from star to star… when blackfella’s look at the stars they look at the black space in between. It’s a metaphor that Uncle Bruce has used to change your perspective on life and look at things from a different point of view, just as he has challenged audiences and asked them to reconsider their perception of Aboriginal culture…” says Tara. 📸 @daniel.boud

"Bangarra Dance Theatre has always been an ensemble company with a fiercely distinctive style. The standard of dancing among the 18 members of the current company has never been higher. The confidence and refinement with which the dancers perform the increasingly sophisticated choreographic demands is particularly noticeable in the high polish achieved by the women in the unison sections of the lovely 'Bowls of Mourning' sequence." says @arts_review of Dark Emu.

One last image from Dark Emu, of  incredible dancer @waangenga, before I say goodbyes to @bangarradancetheatre from the  @canberratheatrecentre. All the best with Perth performances.

I just cannot believe @bangarradancetheatre's beautiful performance Dark Emu ends its season at @canberratheatrecentre tonight. I am so pleased that the performance is getting a lot of love from @visitcanberra peeps as all sessions are almost sold out. If you are still interested in seeing the show, visit Canberra Theater's website for session information and ticket availability. Happy Weekend.

We’re certainly feeling the Bangarra love in #Canberra! We only have two more @canberratheatrecentre performances before we head west to Perth. You can still snap up tickets for today’s matinee or tonight’s final performance of Dark Emu, but be quick! 📸 @facesbywanderlust73 #darkemu #darkemu2018 #bangarra #bangarradancetheatre #stephenpage #contemporarydance #choreography #instadance #dance #dancer #storytelling #indigenousculture #aboriginal #visitcanberra

Two more shows left of Dark Emu before @bangarradancetheatre leaves @canberratheatrecentre and goes to @perthisok. Already curious to find out what the Maestro Stephen Page will create next year. @visitcanberra peeps see the show before it leaves our city.

Bangarra’s Daniel Riley recently spoke with @canberratimes to discuss the choreography and creative process behind our dance work Dark Emu. In describing the concepts behind the key scene ‘Rocks of Knowledge’, Daniel explains that he aimed to translate the patient, measured aquaculture network of the Brewarinna Fish Traps, which were used to catch fish as they swam upstream. “It’s a simple way of working with the elements the First Nation groups knew so well,” he says. “I like the idea of waiting, the building of rocks and waiting for things to come to you.” 📸 @daniel.boud

@bangarradancetheatre has some of the best Australian dancers and one of them is @tyrelleonardlloyd, who I  first saw, last year, while photographing their previous show Bennelong. I saw him again performing today and WOW he totally blew me away. He is one of the amazing 18 dancers performing in Dark Emu at @canberratheatrecentre. Cannot wait to see the whole performance. See you at the theater. :-)
