Taree Sansbury


Presented by Vitalstatistix and Country Arts SA

Kaurna, Narungga and Ngarrindjeri performer and choreographer Taree Sansbury returns home with her first full length dance work mi:wi.

‘Mi:wi’ refers to the invisible ties we have to our past and future, people and land. Drawing on contemporary Indigenous dance technique 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 a powerful performance.

Presented during NAIDOC Week, in partnership with Country Arts SA, the creative team will also perform and run workshops in Murray Bridge.
