“Bangarra’s most perfect show” – Sydney Morning Herald

In all its forms and colours, ochre is essential to the life of Aboriginal communities. This four-part contemporary dance work – yellow, black, red and white – is a portrayal of each colour of this earthy substance, its myriad of purposes and the spiritual significance to Aboriginal people.

Ochres, first performed in 1994, became a watershed production for Bangarra leading to sell out shows around the country. Now back in 2021, Ochres is on a limited tour of regional South Australia.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see Australia’s oldest living culture come to life on stage.

Bangarra is a leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts company, widely acclaimed nationally and around the world for their powerful dancing, distinctive theatrical voice and utterly unique soundscapes, music and design.
