About This Event

“My Urrwai is exquisitely simple storytelling of immense meaning and purpose; engaging, entertaining and enlightening”

Sydney Arts Guide

Ghenoa Gela - little sister, daughter, granddaughter, comic, teacher, fighter, gold medallist, air guitarist, charmer, TV star, Torres Strait mainlander, walking political statement – has made a show 

This is your invitation into the complex political, social, colonial and cultural expectations she navigates every day.

Ghenoa is a recipient of both the renowned Keir Choreographic Award and the Deadly Funny Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award. Laughter and deep reflection go hand in hand in this unique and intimate story told through movement and words. 

My Urrwai, supported by stellar team including director Rachael Maza and dramaturg Kate Champion, is a revealing reflection on and celebration of cultural and familial inheritance, and an unflinching comment on race relations in Australia.

Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and Performing Lines supported by ILBIJERRI Theatre

This show is handpicked to be in the FAC 2019 Season.

 Thanks to our 2019 partners

Information for Educators

Finding our place in adolescence is challenging enough… finding your place as a young woman of colour and culture can make it even more complex.
