I.B.I.S is a story from the Torres Strait, a beautiful and isolated land of laughter and sunny smiles. This joyful work explores life on the islands: a place where, despite challenges of displacement and climate change, the culture remains strong and the people optimistic.
In these heartfelt dance works, Bangarra explores themes of identity, inequality, climate change, and sustainability with a hopeful and positive outlook for the future.
