Firestarter: The Story of Bangarra

Rating: M

Length: 100 mins
Cast: Bangarra Theatre Dance Company. Directed by Nel Minchin & Wayne Blair.

Firestarter marks Bangarra Dance Theatre’s 30th anniversary. Taking us through Bangarra’s birth and spectacular growth, the film recognises Bangarra’s founders and tells the story of how three young Aboriginal brothers – Stephen, David and Russell Page – turned the newly born dance group into a First Nations cultural powerhouse. Through the eyes of the brothers and company alumni, Firestarter explores the loss and reclaiming of culture, the burden of intergenerational trauma, and – crucially – the power of art as a messenger for social change and healing.
