'For the first time, some of Australia's most acclaimed female Indigenous singer/songwriters join together
with their sisters from New Zealand and Papua New Guinea in a powerful symbolic collaboration.
Helpmann Award winner Ursula Yovich (Serbia/Burarra) and Black Arm Band favourite Emma Donovan
(Gumbaynggirr) join Whirimako Black (Maori), Maisey Rika (Maori), Merenia (Maori/Roma) and Ngaiire
(Papua New Guinea) to share hilarious and heartfelt stories of -life on the stage and on the road, fortified
by deep connections to their land and culture.
Walk a Mile in My Shoes is a combination of spoken word poetry, storytelling and song. More than a
concert, the show is a cultural experience and intimate disclosure about the lives of these talented
performers and about finding commonality and strength in culture and language, as well as showcasing the
phenomenal voices of the troupe.' (Source: http://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/uploads-2012/Walk%20A%20Mile%20in%20My%20Shoes.pdf )
