Presented in association with Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy
Long, long time ago, before time… On myriads of floating islands, on the vast ocean that changed its colours as the day went on, in amongst the yellow sand bars, by beautiful and dangerous coral reefs, the ancestors lived.
Stories of the Creation Era tell of how the Torres Strait Islands were created and how their myths and legends began. Bringing to life the stories of her family and her ancestors, Ghenoa Gela tells the tale of the Winds of Woerr. The four winds of the Torres Strait – Kuki, Sager, Naigai and Ziai – marked for her people the passage of time and the coming and going of the seasons.
With the support of her family and elders, Ghenoa takes her place as storyteller, sharing her traditional stories and continuing the oral history of her people.
Winds of Woerr is supported by Managing and Producing Services (MAPS), a joint initiative of the Australia Council and Arts NSW, managed by Performing Lines.
