The Other Side of Me - Gary Lang


Following the success of their 2022 show Waŋa, NT Dance Company offer a powerful, moving dance duet that navigates the limits of physical expression.

Choreographed by Gary Lang, this international, cross-cultural collaboration with Northumbria University (UK) communicates a story of the Stolen Generations’ trauma. With care and compassion, it poses questions about relationships between country of origin, identity, adoption, the criminal justice system and psychological health.

The Other Side of Me translates into dance the true-life story of a young Aboriginal man, born in the 1960s in the Northern Territory, adopted by a white English family and raised in a remote hamlet in the English countryside. Drawing on a collection of personal letters and poems, it offers insights into the mind of a man struggling to re-evaluate his life in light of his and First Nations Australian origins on the other side of the world.

Performance Warnings: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences are advised that this show references people who have died.
