My Urrwai

Studio 1 QPAC

My Urrwai is a funny, unique and intimate show created by Deadly Funny Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award winner Ghenoa Gela.

Ghenoa reflects on and celebrates her cultural and familial inheritance and invites audiences into her world to experience the interplay of the political, social and colonial expectations she dances with every day. Laughter and deep reflection go hand in hand in this story told through movement and words.

My Urrwai

Supported by stellar team including director Rachael Maza and dramaturg Kate Champion, My Urrwai is a revealing window into culture, and an unflinching comment on race relations in Australia.

As a contemporary, mainland Torres Strait Islander woman, dancer, actor, comedian, all-rounder who carries the responsibility of being the only one able to pass on her Grandmothers dance. This work is a peeling back of the many layers that make up G: Happy G, Funny G, Scary G, Sporty G, and so on revealing the deep heart within. Her energetic auto-biographical journey is funny, moving and, ultimately, enlightening.

My Urrwai

Ghenoa is a recipient of both the renowned Keir Choreographic Award and the Deadly Funny Melbourne International Comedy Festival and has just returned from Edinburgh Fringe, where she performed with award winning show, Hot Brown Honey.

The experience of My Urrwai feels like a belly laugh, a sharp intake of breath and a big warm hug... It is a beautifully crafted irreverent story of one woman’s journey to her homeland and an incredibly enlivening night at the theatre.”  On The Town

My Urrwai is an absorbing, swiftly-moving, well-judged performance piece that sparks with intelligence.” Timeout Sydney
