Bangarra has announce their move to International Towers at Barangaroo, Sydney in 2018.

The company is vacating their current premises at Pier 4/5 to make way for the construction phase of the major redevelopment of the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct.

The theatre's Philippe Magid, said the company is excited to have secured a temporary new home featuring a dance studio for rehearsals and office space for administration.

“This is a great partnership between the private sector and the arts.

“It was an extensive search and we are extremely thankful to the NSW Government and International Towers for their generosity and flexibility.

“As a world-class dance company, we require a very specific space and International Towers have made innovative use of a vacant area within Tower Three to ensure we are properly accommodated during this interim period,” said Magid.

International Towers general manager, Tony Byrne said Bangarra is a welcome addition to the growing innovation community at International Towers.

“They are a wonderful addition to our current ecosystem of tenants - bringing an arts perspective and an innovative, global outlook as well as a deep connection to our indigenous culture and heritage within the precinct."

International Towers was developed by Lendlease.

Bangarra has been a national partner in Lendlease’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for the last two years.

Bangarra has been based at Pier 4/5 at Walsh Bay since 1997, and the premises have been refitted numerous times to accommodate burgeoning staff and production needs.

Bangarra have just finished their sold out season of their acclaimed new work Bennelong at Sydney Opera House.

The company then tours to Canberra, Brisbane and Melbourne.
