OUR Land People Stories Each of the three works in Bangarra’s OUR Land People Stories enlarges our understanding of connection with the land, learning from the past, the glue of community and the enduring power of storytelling. In a series of short, surreal and highly evocative scenes, Macq relives a massacre of indigenous Australians in NSW, ordered by governor Lachlan Macquarie. Beau Dean Riley Smith and Daniel Riley created Miyagan together. It shows a kinship system reclaiming young people who are at first disconnected from it. Stephen Page’s homage to Arnhem Land artist Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Nyapanyapa, is wondrously multi-layered. The 17 dancers are entrancing, revelling in fluid, full-bodied movement and animating every moment with shining sincerity. Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point. Today, 2pm and 8pm. Tickets: $35-$95. Bookings: (02) 9250 7777. Until July 9. play with this. Almost all the five actors play two roles, and there is a lot of fun in the changing and switching between them. All this doubling makes for a very funny balancing act between idiocy and romance. Miranda Tapsell (pictured) is lovely as the always smiling young heroine, alternating with the rough-asbags, comic, wise servant. SBW Stables Theatre, 10 Nimrod Street, Kings Cross.
