Yanagai! Yanagai!

by Andrea James (Yorta Yorta)

directed by Harold Dean James & Karen Oughtred

 

La MaMa E.T.C. in association with the Australian Aboriginal Theatre Initiative presents Yanagai! Yanagai! by Andrea James (Yorta Yorta) Yanagai! Yanagai! evokes a place where past, present and future exist as one. On the banks of "Dhungula" sacred trees, familiar fishing holes, cheeky dingoes, min-min lights and the ghosts of the past weave a deep connection to the land. A theatrical feast of story, music, puppetry and magic realism. It celebrates the oral traditions of the Yorta Yorta people, whose history predates the Druids and the Egyptians. It is also a heartfelt plea for long-overdue justice, with sections taken from transcripts of an infamous Australian court decision denying meaningful recognition to the Yorta Yorta and their ancestral land claims.
