Friends Presentation - Captain Cook: A Culture of Music and Dance

Presented by Dr Heather Clarke

Dr Heather Clarke will reveal the untold story of how Cook used dance to keep his sailors happy and healthy. The role of dance in cultural exchanges when he toured the South Seas, and how Lord Morton influenced these encounters. Discover how the social English country dances of the period reflected Cook’s popularity with the titles: Transit of Venus, Island of Love, South Sea, Omai, and Captain Cook’s Country Dance. Hear how the life and death of the famous navigator were commemorated on the stage.

Dr Heather Blasdale Clarke is a dance researcher, educator and performer, specialising in the history of European dance in eighteenth and nineteenth century colonial Australia.
