Bangarra Dance Theatre, present the Victorian premiere of a powerful new contemporary program, SandSong: Stories from the Great Sandy Desert.
Under the vast Kimberley sky, the red pindan dust stretches across the desert homelands of the Walmajarri, where the ancient knowledge of People and of Country is preserved through Songlines that have endured for hundreds of generations.
SandSong tells the unique story of this Place and the survival of its People, where between the 1920s and 1960s, Aboriginal people were removed off their Country and forced into hard labour for no wages and minimal rations. Despite this displacement and cultural disruption, the people of the Western Desert have maintained unbroken connection to their Land, keeping stories and kinship strong.
SandSong will be performed at the Arts Centre Melbourne from 27th August to 4th September.
