Mathinna was originally created in 2008, with choreography by Artistic Director Stephen Page.
Inspired by a young girl’s journey between two cultures, Mathinna traces the story of a young Aboriginal girl removed from her traditional home and adopted into western colonial society, only to be ultimately returned to the fragments of her original heritage. Mathinna herself has become the archetype of the ‘stolen child’ and, in this outstanding work, Bangarra recreates her powerful story of vulnerability and searching in an era of confusion and intolerance.
Running time: 75 minutes, including an interview with Artistic Director Stephen Page
