Delve deeper into the work Unaipon
Unaipon is the first of three works that comprise Bangarra's 30th anniversary season, Bangarra: 30 years of sixty five thousand.
Choreographed by Frances Rings in 2004, Unaipon is a monumental work that tells the compelling story of David Unaipon; a proud Ngarrindjeri man, inventor, author, philosopher, and visionary.
Unaipon explores his advocacy for better treatment of Aboriginal people and his commitment to improving relationships between black and white Australians. Through Rings' modern, propulsive choreography, performed to a powerful score by David Page, dancers trace the themes and preoccupations of David Unaipon's vibrant intellect and the path he forged for the future.
"As a Company, we acknowledge his sacrifices and contributions that transformed our country and its attitudes towards our First Australians." Frances Rings
Unaipon is a powerful story of determination and resilience – delicately choreographed, exquisitely told, and not to be missed.
