Kaurna, Narungga and Ngarrindjeri performer and choreographer Taree Sansbury returns home with her first full length dance work mi:wi.
Referring to the invisible ties we have to our past and future, people and land, mi:wi draws on contemporary Indigenous dance techniques and the Ngarrindjeri cultural practice of weaving. This arresting dance work evokes the impact of climate change on coastal communities and the importance of the passing on culture to future generations.
With one eye on the future and the other on the past, mi:wi sees three First Nations women intertwine their connection to country, ancestry, each other and their future in one powerful performance.
Choreographer: Taree Sansbury;
Composer and sound design: Alyx Dennison; Lighting designer/ Stage manager: Cheryn Frost; Costume designer: Peta Strachan; Ngarrindjeri consultant: Phyllis Williams; Performers: Katina Olsen, Caleena Sansbury and Taree Sansbury.
mi:wi was originally supported by Next Wave in 2018.
