Goori Dooki

29 May - 1 June
40 days from now
Ngay ngarra ngarra thurritay Me Listen, listen understand

Presented by Ngarrama Productions

Pops sometimes forgets – a pot on the stove, getting his grandson to school, his medicine – and his language and the songs from his youth.

With the help of a childhood companion in the form of the Goori Dooki bird (Gurri Thurrigi) both Pops and his grandson rediscover lost memories, songs and language - in the process remembering who they are and their responsibilities to their culture.

Goori Dooki is an exciting performance for young and old that reimagines Aboriginal language and culture in a contemporary storytelling performance about memory and identity.
This performance incorporates a range of Aboriginal songs in language from across the eastern seaboard of NSW, dance and animations.

Each performance is followed by a short language workshop suitable for all ages.
School support material is available for pre and post performance classroom work.

Gurri-Thurr-aye was featured as a Work in Development in Season 2018 and we invite you to the World Premier.

Running Time: 65mins (no interval)
