Wyniss

Torres Strait Song and Dance

Understand how culture and history are passed on through song, dance, and childhood games.

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