Performer Ghenoa Gela is bringing her one-woman show My Urrwai home to Rockhampton next month.
My Urrwai is a sensitive and deeply personal story in which laughter and deep reflection go hand in hand. It is an autobiographical show, weaving together spoken story and movement.
The show premiered at the 2018 Sydney Festival and is coming to Rocky on Wednesday 31 July at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre. There’ll be a performance for school students at 1pm followed by a Q&A session, then the public show is 7:30pm.
Ghenoa Gela is a multi-talented Koedal (Crocodile) and Waumer (Frigate Bird) Torres Strait Islander woman who grew up in Rockhampton.
She’s a dancer, actor, choreographer, comedian, and one of the hosts of Indigenous youth-oriented dance exercise TV show Move-It Mob Style. Her last peformance in Rockhampton was with Bell Shakespeare Company’s Julius Caesar last year.
Ghenoa’s skill has been recognised with a Keir Choreographic Award and the Deadly Funny Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award.
