Deborah Brown Exits Bangarra Dance Theatre
Bangarra Dance Theatre announced today that after over ten years of outstanding achievements, senior dancer Deborah Brown has decided to leave the company.
As well as being one of Bangarra's most acclaimed performers, Brown has been encouraged and nurtured as a choreographer by Artistic Director Stephen Page, creating one of four works in Dance Clan 3 during Corroboree Sydney in November 2013.
Since joining Bangarra in 2003, Brown has performed nationally in 16 different works with the company and has toured with Bangarra to 14 different countries with seven different works.
Deborah Brown's final performance with Bangarra Dance Theatre was in Kinship at the Holland Dance Festival on February 14 and 15 2014.
Deborah Brown says of her departure, "My time with Bangarra is one of the greatest love affairs I've had, artistically and culturally. The presence there is indescribable and I will forever have the company's medicine in my veins."
