Jarradah Gooragulli – Dance of the Brolgas blends dance, spoken word, and moving image in a special performance event not to be missed.
Based on writing by the late Nambitjina-Mooradoop Dr Kathy McGinness Mills and co-written with Jada Alberts, this First Nations-led performance celebrates the strength of culture and spirit of survival that exists in all of us.
This World Premiere tells a creation story alongside the story of two lovers: Jack McGinniss, whose mother Lucy Alyandabu was a cook at Kahlin Compound where her younger children were removed in 1918, and Violet Wakelin, of Gurrindji/Mudburra background who was removed from Wavehill Station to Kahlin Compound.
Jarradah Gooragulli - Dance of the Brolgas is a story first written 40 years ago. It’s finally being told.
Jarradah Gooragulli – Dance of the Brolgas consists of a 40 minute performance work accompanied by an exhibition to be viewed before or after the show. Allow 1 hour for the full experience.
