The full length work is both “seen” and “unseen” with sections designed for blindfolded audiences. What We Were Handed is based on Australian Indigenous creation myths, called “songlines” or “dreaming tracks”–paths across the land marking the routes taken by creator-beings who wandered the continent in “dreamtime.” To this day, individuals are entrusted with re-walking and re-singing each family’s path to keep it alive.
