Ghenoa Gela - little sister, daughter, granddaughter, comic, teacher, fighter, gold medallist, air guitarist, charmer, television 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 a 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.
