'A rich visual feast and a return to the purity of dance and tradition, Stephen Page’s triple bill Corroboree embraces the Dreamtime, a time when animal spirits occupied the land without the influence of humans.
'Corroboree takes a journey through the songlines of three dreamings that are central to the lives of indigenous people: Brolga, Roo and Turtle.'
'Brolga- a ritualistic cleansing of the spirit, wet season in the meeting grounds of Arnhem Land.'
'Roo – stalking of prey in the headlights, the very essence of time and fear.'
'Turtle – sand, sea and the waters of the Torres Strait, the everyday turbulence of birth and death.'
'Quietly political and evocative, Corroboree strives to bring attention to the origins of life.'
Toured: 2001 National Tour – Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne; 2001 International Tour – USA (16 city tour); 2002 International Tour – Asia (Beijing, Hong Kong, Guangzhou) & Monaco; and 2013 Regional Tour (Brolga as a part of Kinship) – Victoria & Tasmania.
