TORRES STRAIT SONG AND DANCE

On the surface, childhood games seem like pure fun — but they are also an important record of who we are and where we come from. From spinning tops to string figures, this wildly entertaining and colourfully costumed ensemble show how culture and history are passed on through singing and dancing. By comparing their own childhood games to those from the remote Torres Strait, students come to understand the importance of traditions, and to be thankful to those who teach them. Presented by Musica Viva In Schools in conjunction with NAISDA.
