Opening Next Week – 5th Biennial Yellamundie Festival Celebrates First Peoples Storytellers

January 14, 2021 Events Calendar No Comments

All performances will be COVID-safe following NSW Health advice, with social distancing, compulsory mask wearing, strict cleaning measures inside Carriageworks, as well as virtual viewings. The Festival will continue to monitor the advice of NSW Health and update as appropriate.

From 22-23 January 2021 for just $15, Sydneysiders can see brand-new developmental works from cutting-edge First Peoples talent including:

  • The Lookout, a playwrighting performance by Dalara Williams;
  • Waterholes, a dance performance by Shana O’Brien;
  • The First Shot, a composition performance by Troy Russell;
  • Gumbirrangarroo Dalanngarroo (Longest Time Right Now), a composition performance by Brad Steadman and Mark Ross.

On January 23, Yellamundie Festival will present two live-panel discussions:

  • Ticketed Meet The Artists Panel showcasing the voices of Yellamundie Festival 2021;
  • Free live-streamed Yawarra (Dramaturgy) International First Nations Panel featuring renowned First Peoples theatre practitioners from Australia, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Turtle Island (Canada).

Due to interstate border restrictions two performances will be developed in the artists home states and shown virtually in February & March as part of Yellamundie Festival at Home:

  • (MELBOURNE, VIC) Seventh Season Dreaming, a dance performance by Sermsah Bin Saad;
  • (BRISBANE, QLD) Capricorn, a playwrighting performance by Aidan Rowlingson.

Each work will undergo two weeks of Development Workshops, before being presented in a festival of public readings, yarns, and events in Sydney in January, and Brisbane and Melbourne in February and March 2021.

Yellamundie Festival is the only Festival in Australia to identify, develop, and present new First Peoples stories for stage and has seen ten featured works go on to full production in Australia.
