Bangarra Dance Theatre — Australia's leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts company — is marking the end of its 30th year with an immersive new installation at Carriageworks.

Curated by artistic director Stephen Page and head of design Jacob Nash, Knowledge Ground: 30 Years of Sixty Five Thousand invites visitors to explore three decades of groundbreaking work what has seen the company preserve ancient Indigenous traditions and sharing contemporary songlines.

The installation is made up of a series of themed spaces that explore Bangarra's core principles of Country, Language, kinship, social and history. As you move through, you'll be immersed in projections of video from past productions, bathed in Bangarra's soundscapes and get acquainted (or reacquainted) with custom-made set pieces and costumes.

Along with the exhibition, a digital archive of the same name has also launched. The Knowledge Ground website lets you look through all of Bangarra's shows, stories and information, to make sure the theatre's culture and creative practice is recorded, learned and shared.

The exhibition will be open daily from 10am–6pm until Saturday, December 14 — except for this Saturday, December 7, when it will be closed.
