The Crab and the Mangrove Tree

A collaboration between ILBIJERRI Theatre and Black Drum Productions, tells a story from Saibai Island of the Torres Strait

A universal and immersive theatrical experience for children aged five and over, The Crab and The Mangrove Tree is told through story, dance and song, introducing children to the vibrant language, culture and people of Saibai Island. This new work is guided by a strong community of Saibai Island mothers, aunties and grandmothers based in Brisbane. In 2019 we bring the first creative development of this exciting new work to Clancestry
