The company’s dancers are dynamic artists, each of whom has a proud Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background.  The first stop in a series of such activities is Bhopal where Bangarra will collaborate with the Baiga - a forest-dwelling Indigenous community of central India from Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand.
