Mathinna





Mathinna was originally created in 2008 by Artistic Director Stephen Page and has toured extensively through capital and regional centres across Australia.

Inspired by a girl’s journey between two cultures, Mathinna traces the history of an Aboriginal girl removed from her traditional life, adopted into western colonial society to be ultimately returned to the fragments of her original heritage. Mathinna became the archetype of the ‘stolen child’ and in this work, Bangarra Dance Theatre creates her powerful story of vulnerability and searching in an era of confusion and intolerance.

Filmed at the Theatre Royal, Hobart in 2010, the DVD includes an interview with Artistic Director Stephen Page about the inspiration and creative processes informing the work.

Running time: 75 mins.

A comprehensive study guide is also available to download.
