As Mother Nature’s fate hangs by a thread, we find ourselves scrambling for a lifeline. Though sometimes tangled, does the connection to our ancestry reveal a way forward?

mi:wi (pronunciation: mee-wee) refers to the invisible ties we have to our past and future, people and country. In this dance theatre work, choreographer and performer Taree Sansbury thoughtfully re-connects three Indigenous women through the practice of Ngarrindjeri weaving.

Looking back and moving forward with growing sense of urgency, mi:wi speaks to the impacts of climate change while emphasising future lineages’ passage in continuing cultural knowledge. With one eye on the future and the other on the past, Sansbury interweaves time and bodies in an attempt to reveal the messenger bird’s warning cry in the present.
