Winyanboga Yurringa

Date: 26 Mar 2019

On the bank of a great river, six Indigenous women gather: a community leader, a city girl, a niece with a bucketload of issues, a woman from a mission town, a park ranger, and the curator of a museum’s Indigenous unit. These women are connected by kinship, but their worlds are far apart, separated by space, opportunity, time …

They think they’re together for a camping trip, a bit of fishing, a few yarns. But there’s important stuff amongst the hilarity. What it is to be safe. What it is to belong. Who owns stories. Where we’ve come from, and where we’re going. How do you reconnect with community, if you’ve been wrenched away? What hoops do you have to jump through?

Written by Andrea James and directed by Anthea Williams, this production features Roxanne McDonald, Tuuli Narkle, Angeline Penrith, Tasma Walton, Dalara Williams and Dubs Yunupingu.
