DUBBO: LIFE OF A SONGMAN
ABC Television | 2020 | 56min
Bangarra Dance Theatre joins forces with some of our most celebrated and iconic Indigenous artists in this beautiful commemorative show at Carriageworks, honouring composer and actor David Page - Bangarra's long-time songman.
Dubboo – life of a songman honours the incredible achievements of a formidable artist. Bringing together his love of classical, electronic and traditional music, cabaret, dance and drag, David’s boundless creativity will be celebrated in a dynamic and joyous performance.
Composer Iain Grandage responded to David’s music in a special series of performances animated by a string quartet, electronica, and the artistry of Bangarra’s dancers.
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. Having worked with David in a range of mediums, the three artists will call on their collective experiences to honour and bring his spirit home to rest.
