‘Spear’ Clip

Inspired by Director Stephen Page’s seminal 2000 dance work, Spear, and other pieces from the Bangarra Dance Theatre’s repertoire, Spear is the story of Djali, a young Aboriginal man, told in movement, music and words.

DJALI represents all Indigenous men of 21, who face the questions of that age: What is it to be a man? How do I find love, self worth, value in my life? Humor. Dignity. Self-expression. How do I conquer fear and desire? How do I live in today’s world and not be a traitor to the past?He sets off on a journey of initiation to understand what it means to be a man in a modern day world. He sees the problems being faced by Aboriginal men in remote and urban communities. As he struggles to find his place, he becomes awakened to a spiritual force within, guiding him into manhood.
