Bangarra Dance Theatre
The trailer FIRESTARTER: The Story of Bangarra features some of the remarkable archival footage we filmed of Bangarra Dance Theatre’s early performances (Ochres, Ninni) and Artistic Director Stephen Page’s very first choreographic work at the Sydney Dance Company, Mooggrah.
Firestarter marks Bangarra Dance Theatre’s 30th anniversary. Taking us through Bangarra’s birth and spectacular growth, this feature documentary recognises its founders and tells the story of how three young Aboriginal brothers — Stephen, David and Russell Page — turned the newly born dance group into a First Nations cultural powerhouse.
