Event Series Event Series: Waru – journey of the small turtle

Waru – journey of the small turtle

26 June - 29 June

Bangarra Dance Theatre Waru QPAC 2024

Migi, a small green turtle navigates her way under the star-illuminated skies of the Torres Strait, back to the beach where she was born.

The season has started, the turtles are returning to nest, and soon the island will welcome a new generation of hatchlings!

In Bangarra’s first dedicated work for children, join heroine Migi as she undertakes a journey of discovery and survival. A contemporary saltwater Lagaw Kazil (Island Children) story inspired by the totemic system of the green turtle, Waru – journey of the small turtle is an interactive and immersive introduction to Torres Strait Islander culture and dance for 3 to 8-year-olds and their families.

Created by former Bangarra Artistic Director, Stephen Page, together with Hunter Page-Lochard and Bangarra alumni Dancers and Choreographers Sani Townson and Elma Kris, Waru provides parents, teachers and caregivers a unique opportunity to open up conversations about climate change, caring for the environment and the traditional cultural values of respect and reciprocity.
