Terrain premiered in 2012 at Arts Centre Melbounre and marks Bangarra's resident choreographer Frances Rings' sixth contemporary dance work for the company.
Terrain is an homage to country, transporting the audience to Lake Eyre, one of Australia's natural wonders. During its national tour Terrain was described as a 'triumph' and a 'sublime work' by critics, and celebrated by audiences.
Choreographer Frances RIngs on her inspiration for this work: ''Landscape is at the core of our existence and is a fundamental connection between us and the natural world. The power of that connection is immeasurable. It cleanses, it heals, it awakens and it renews...when we are surrounded by nature we begin to understand our place...Terrain is where spirit and place meet'.
