David Page RIP

Today I joined  members of the Page family and the Bangarra Dance Theatre for the funeral of Roy David Page.

I knew David Page only by his reputation with the Bangarra Dance Theatre. By the time the funeral finished I felt I was mourning a friend.

We laughed, wept, sang and clapped his spirit home as those who were close to him shared generously of their love of a most remarkable man.

I was honoured to be among family and friends today from the First Peoples of this land and those I have met through the arts community. 

I am inspired by David’s living of his identity as a gay man and I hope I can honour his legacy in my queer community.


Dance into the Dreaming David.

A tribute blog to one of the great human rights activists of the 20th Century. I am proud to stand in solidarity with world leaders and citizens who acknowledge the extraordinary contribution of one man to the cause of peace and justice for his country and the human community.

Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela. May we honour your legacy by our commitment to human rights and our willingness to challenge racism.
