    Drawn from 65,000 years of culture, Australia’s Bangarra Dance Theatre presents foundational work, seemingly pulled from the very land itself. In their first visit to Vancouver, Bangarra brings a selection of their extraordinary 30-year repertoire that weaves together totemic storytelling, performance and rich musical scores. A key part of the resurgence of Indigenous dance making, the company is committed to sharing the cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with audiences around the world. Tracing an unbroken song-line, Spirit gives voice to a cosmos of plants, animals, and ancestral medicine, laid down one step at a time. Dance becomes a form of ceremony and celebration between the people, the land, and creation itself.

    The first world war was raging in Europe, and Australian greengrocer Fred Goon, son of Louey Fong Goon and Elizabeth Johnson, wanted to fight. Desperately.

    But to do so he would have to defy a Defence Act that banned men “not substantially of European origin or descent”. Australia was in the grip of the White Australia Policy, used for decades to exclude Chinese immigrants; the recruitment rules reflected similarly racist intent.
