Place is dancer Kaine Sultan-Babij’s first choreographic work for Bangarra. Grounded by his clan, his heritage, and his family totem of the caterpillar, he takes us to an urban Australian setting. In the abstract language of dance, he draws on his personal experience to explore what it means to be black and gay in today’s world when you’re displaced from your language and culture.
