Book Now

Gary Lang trained at the National Aboriginal and Islander Dance School and has toured nationally & internationally with some of Australia's premier dance companies, the Aboriginal and Islander Dance Theatre, Bangarra, Dance North and Tracks Inc.

His choreographic work is sensual and evocative, presenting the best of contemporary dance rooted in the traditions of Indigenous Australia’. In 2006 Gary was invited to present a choreographic work at the prestigious Indigenous Dreaming Festival. Committed to working from a grass roots level, Gary also works with local schools conducting a range of dance training programs, once again filling a much needed niche in the Darwin dance community.

During 2008, Gary researched and created Munuk Gapu – Fresh water Salt water - a dance production that interprets the lives, adventures and misadventures of Territory pearl divers from a bygone era. In August 2008, Munuk Gapu was featured at the Darwin Festival, performing at the Playhouse Theatre in the Darwin Entertainment Centre.
