Bangarra Dance Theatre

Dance lovers travelled long distances to enjoy opening night of Bangarra Dance Theatre’s latest production, Lore – Dance Stories of Land and Sea.

Sisters-in-law Delys and Vi wright, who are 83 and 89 years old respectively, dropped in from Bunbury, Western Australia for the occasion.

“We were on the train to Perth at six o’clock this morning,”  Delys said, “and we only just caught our flight.”

For Sydney-siders Sylvia and Peter Jacka it was a double celebration.

“Our daughter arranged this trip for us as a birthday present to me and a Fathers’ Day gift for her dad,” Sylvia said.

Bangarra Dance Theatre was at the Queensland Performing Arts Complex August 7-15, as part of a national tour.
