My Urrwai by Ghenoa Gela

The Art House
Wyong, NSW

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 is exquisitely simple storytelling of immense meaning and purpose; engaging, entertaining and enlightening” – Sydney Arts Guide
