Item Not On Sale


Choreographed by Artistic Director Stephen Page, Patyegarang was first presented as part of Bangarra's 25th anniversary in 2014.

As the colonial fleet arrived on Eora country in the late 18th Century, a young Aboriginal girl, Patyegarang, befriended the colony's timekeeper, Lieutenant William Dawes. She gifted him her language and culture in an extraordinary display of trust and friendship, which now inspires our imaginations about 'first contact'.

This live dance performance premiered at the Sydney Opera House in June 2014.
