About the Show
Ghenoa Gela – little sister, daughter, granddaughter, comic, teacher, rebel, gold-medallist, air-guitarist, charmer, TV star, Torres Strait mainlander, walking political statement. And now she’s made a show, told through movement and words. She’s drawing on the traditional and the everyday, the political and the personal, to tell a story that’s irreverent, provocative and moving.
A revealing reflection on, and celebration of, cultural inheritance, and an unflinching portrayal of what it’s like to walk a tightrope of politics and family every day.
A co-production with Performing Lines and presented in association with ILBIJERRI Theatre Company and Sydney Festival
Indigenous theatre at Belvoir supported by The Balnaves Foundation
Please be aware, this production contains occasional coarse language and strobe lighting.
