Marrow description

“Imagine this country, again.” – Stan Grant 

Set on the threshold between past and present, Marrow, Australian Dance Theatre’s new major work, explores our historical inheritance and the smoky forms of our national conscience. 

With a nearly 60-year history, Australian Dance Theatre has entered a new era under Artistic Director Daniel Riley. The works he has created since his appointment, including SAVAGE in 2022 and Tracker in the 2023 Adelaide Festival, have united the personal and political. 

Poetry, music and dance can be powerful weapons, and this company wields them well.


In Marrow, the company’s dancers imagine a shared ground where politics and identity are intrinsic but do not define us. Together, they envision a future that acknowledges the weight of our history and the push of our present moment. 

The type of theatre that simply must be experienced.

Time Out

Riley’s choreography is inventive and beautifully performed by [Australian Dance Theatre’s] dancers.
