The Urab Dancers are serving as a beacon for the young Porumalgul people of the Torres Strait who believe that language and dance have something to offer them, and indeed that they have something to offer in return. They have shared their cultural performances and stories with wider audiences and this year plan to undertake a tour to several destinations on mainland Australia. What's in store for a group of young people who are now realising their cultural past holds the key to their very modern future?
