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.
“Gela is a dancer, but she is also a vivid storyteller with a forceful dramatic presence.” The Sydney Morning Herald
“My Urrwai is an absorbing, swiftly-moving, well-judged performance piece that sparks with intelligence.” Timeout Sydney
