Event Details

David Page was the musical heartbeat of Bangarra Dance Theatre. In 27 original scores for the company, he reinvented the art of the soundtrack to encompass traditional language, song and instruments with the sounds of electronica, hip-hop, classical and the natural world. If you’ve heard his scores to Ochres, Mathinna, Terrain or Patyegarang, you’ve heard his genius at play.

Dubboo – life of a songman celebrates this incredible artist. Featuring a notable cast of David’s collaborators, including acclaimed Indigenous artists Archie Roach, Ursula Yovich and Djakapurra Munyarryun, this one-off celebration will be a heartfelt response to his lasting creative legacy and music. Composer and arranger Iain Grandage will respond to David’s music, animated by a string quartet and performances by Bangarra Dance Theatre’s dancers.

In a change of pace and a joyous celebration, the second half of the show will recall David’s acclaimed one-man show Page 8.* Featuring narration from Ningali Lawford-Wolf, with the creative talents of Bangarra’s dance ensemble, and performer Ben Graetz’s infamous alter ego Miss Ellaneous, it explores the many mediums where David was at home, from cabaret and storytelling, to film and drag.

*Page 8, by Louis Nowra & David Page, from an original concept by David Page, first produced by Belvoir in 2004.
