Sponsored by: Telstra

Bangarra Dance Theatre is one of the youngest and oldest of Australia's dance companies. Its living traditions go back at least 40 000 years but it also reflects the lives and attitudes of Indigenous people today. This unique company blends traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture with international contemporary dance influences to create a truly Australian dance language.

In May 2003, Mastery Multimedia designed and produced this Educational CD-ROM for Bangarra, with the generous sponsorship of Telstra.

The CD-ROM presents over 40 mins of video footage and over 40 mins of music from a wide range of Bangarra's recent repertoire, together with in-depth information such as Director's Notes, Choreographer's Notes and Composer's Notes for the different performances.

In conjunction with advisors from the Education Department of NSW, a series of Study Topics was designed and included on the CD-ROM, to meet the needs of Senior High School Curriculum studies in Dance, Performance Arts, and Indigenous Studies.

Mastery also used an innovative implementation of Apple's QuickTime VR technology to present AIATSIS's Clan Map of Aboriginal Australia in a form which encourages exploration and discovery.
