AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Described as a hymn to country, Terrain transports us to Lake Eyre the place of Australia’s inland sea: one of the few untouched natural waterways in the world. Bangarra explores the relationship of Indigenous people to country and how landscape becomes a second skin.' (Source: Bangarra Dance Theatre website)
