Indigenous performance is on the rise as witnessed by the Indigenous Body Of Work, an impressive list of over 350 works and counting.

Inspired by The Cycle, a collaboration between Indigenous Performing Arts Alliance (IPAA), Debajehmujig Storytellers and the National Arts Centre English Theatre, this exchange places Indigenous leaders at the centre of performance exploration.
