Bangarra Dance Theatre: Waru – journey of the small turtle

Bangarra Dance Theatre Waru Journey of the Small Turtle

Under the star-illuminated skies of the Torres Strait, a green turtle navigates her way back to the beach where she was born

Bangarra Dance Theatre: Waru – journey of the small turtle

The season has started, the turtles are returning to nest, and soon the island will welcome a new generation of hatchlings – amongst them, our small turtle friend, Migi!

In Bangarra’s first dedicated work for children, join our heroine Migi as she undertakes a journey of discovery and survival. A contemporary saltwater Lagaw Kazil (Island Children) story inspired by the totemic system of the green turtle, Waru – journey of the small turtle is an interactive and immersive introduction to Torres Strait Islander culture and dance for 3 to 8-year-olds and their families.
