The Barefoot Divas are six soulful singers and songwriters from Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea - each a star in her own right, together a force to be reckoned with.
Helpmann Award winner Ursula Yovich (Serbia/Burarra)and Black Arm Band favourite Emma Donovan (Gumbaynggirr) are joined by their sisters Whirimako Black (Maori), Maisey Rika (Maori), Merenia (Maori/Roma) and Ngaiire (Papua New Guinea) to share hilarious stories of diva life on the stage and on the road, fortified by deep connections to their land and Indigenous cultures.
Directed by Vicki Gordon, written by Alana Valentine and with music directed by Adam Ventoura, Walk a Mile in My Shoes is an uplifting expression of shared culture, community and the power of song.
