Local creative to feature

A theatre piece by Yapeen local and Wamba Wamba creative Brodie Murray has been commissioned for Australia’s premiere First Nations celebration YIRRAMBOI in Melbourne in 2021.
The talented 19-year-old actor and writer said he is thrilled that YIRRAMBOI have selected his work Soul of Possum for the renowned event.
Meaning ‘Tomorrow’, in the shared local languages of the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung peoples, YIRRAMBOI is a breath-taking celebration of the diversity and continuous evolution of the longest living cultures in the World. It features a unique and exciting program of free and low-cost events spanning genres and art forms including music, dance, theatre, film, exhibitions, markets, fashion parades, family-friendly events, talks and symposiums.
YIRRAMBOI’s creative director, Caroline Martin said YIRRAMBOI is more than a festival.
