Australia’s leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performing arts company, Bangarra Dance Theatre is now accepting applications for their 2024 David Page Music Fellowship program. Applications will close Wednesday 24th April 2024.

Proud Munaldjali and Nunukal man, Roy David Page was Bangarra Dance Theatre’s Songman, Composer, and Music Director. His legacy lives on in perpetuity as the musical heartbeat of the company to which he dedicated so much of his life.

In 2024, there will be two Fellowships awarded in recognition of David’s extraordinary life, his multi-talents, and his contribution across so many theatrical productions. Inaugurated in 2017, the David Page Music Fellowship provides Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander composers/musicians early in their careers with paid opportunities to collaborate on various projects with the company.

The program offers emerging music/sound artists the opportunity to work in a professional, culturally respectful, and collaborative environment, guided by highly experienced mentors.

This is a paid Fellowship for which the Fellows are expected to spend at least four weeks at Bangarra's studios on Gadigal Country, in Sydney, throughout 2024. During the Fellowship, recipients will enhance their creative, composition, and production skills by actively contributing to the creation of new scores for Bangarra Dance Theatre productions under the mentorship of acclaimed composers Steve Francis and Brendon Boney.

Bangarra Dance Theatre welcomes and actively encourages applications from designers residing in regional and remote areas across Australia.
