Ghenoa Gela - little sister, daughter, granddaughter, Rockhampton born and bred 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.
A Koedal (Crocodile) and Waumer (Frigate Bird) woman, Ghenoa Gela is a strong Torres Strait Islander from Rockhampton. She 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 a revealing reflection on and celebration of cultural and familial inheritance, and an unflinching comment on race relations in Australia.
