about the artist

Forest Tribe Dance Theatre was established in 2016 by Debbie Bandara to bring innovative live performances to untapped audiences of children including many who may otherwise never see live theatre. By bringing dance theatre out of traditional venues and into libraries and other public spaces and encouraging school groups as well as public audiences from diverse backgrounds, Forest Tribe engages children directly with the arts. Our immersive performances create a unique world in any setting, without compromising on innovative and detailed set, costume, puppetry and technology.
