Internationally acclaimed for combining more than 65,000 years of aboriginal and torres strait islander culture with contemporary dance, the company, in India, will stage 'Spirit 2018' - a powerful collection of dance stories.
The production has been created by artistic director Stephen Page, drawn from the company's 29-year history.
"Bangarra's visit to India is a great opportunity to share our indigenous culture and history with Indian audiences.
"The dancers are dynamic artists, each of whom has a proud aboriginal and/or torres strait islander background," Harinder Sidhu, Australia's High Commissioner to India, said.
The company's India tour will take off with a dance performance set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Qutb Minar here on October 25, presented in partnership with the Archaeological Survey of India.
Complementing Bangarra's multi-city tour will be a series of community engagement workshops with indigenous groups across the country, during which it will travel to Purulia, Bhopal and Aizawl, to learn and experience a variety of traditional dances in a series of artistic collaborations with these communities.
"Cultural exchange enables us to share, learn and grow as a company, and we are deliberately increasing the number of community engagement activities we undertake to set a new benchmark for the future," said Bangarra's Executive Director Philippe Magid.
