The Making of Alchemy

Duration: 6:21

Exploring mineral substances and the tensions resulting from their dual importance in Indigenous ritual and western industrialism is the inspiration behind the creation of this incredible work, Alchemy. Performed by the students from the NSW Public Schools Aboriginal Dance Company under the guidance and direction of the Bangarra Youth Program team, the work was filmed on Country from over 20 locations across the state.

The work is based on the original choreography of Alchemy by Bangarra’s Artistic Director, Stephen Page. This excerpt focuses on Iron, Lead and Copper.

Follow the students’ amazing journey and be inspired by The Making of Alchemy.
