The Making of Alchemy

Duration: 6:21

Follow the amazing journey of our NSW Public School Aboriginal Dance Company students as they developed a film, performed remotely on Country, under the guidance of the Bangarra Youth Program team led by Sidney Saltner, based on the choreography of Bangarra’s beautiful 1996 work Alchemy, choreographed by Artistic Director, Stephen Page.

Alchemy is an exploration of four mineral substances, and the tensions resulting from their dual importance in Indigenous ritual and western industrialism. This excerpt focuses on Iron, Lead and Copper.
