Venue: Belvoir Theatre -Downstairs
Theatre Company: A Belvoir and Performing Lines co-production presented in association with ILBIJERRI Theatre Company and Sydney Festival.
Duration: 55 Min
Take a deeply personal trip inside the life stories and culture of Torres Strait Islander dancer, sister, daughter, comic, teacher, TV star and air guitarist Ghenoa Gela.
In My Urrwai, Gela reflects on and celebrates her cultural and familial inheritance, and invites her audience to experience the interplay of the political, social and colonial expectations she dances with every day. It’s a revealing window into culture, and an unflinching comment on race relations in Australia.
Gela is a uniquely enthralling performer, a recipient of the 2016 Keir Choreographic Award and the winner of the Deadly Funny Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award. For her, laughter and deep reflection go hand in hand.
