Gurr Era Op

In Development

Written by Genoa Gela and produced by Force Majeure in association with ILBIJERRI Theatre Company 

Award-winning Torres Strait Island choreographer and performer Ghenoa Gela collaborates with Sydney’s renowned physical theatre company Force Majeure and ILBIJERRI Theatre Company, to develop this dance-theatre work, now in its third year of development, focusing on the impact of climate change on Torres Strait culture.

The work asks: Is culture inextricably linked to place? And what does it mean if the islands sink? What will the legacy and consequences of this issue be for future generations of islanders?

Co-Directed by Rachael Maza and Ghenoa Gela, this show features an extraordinary all-female cast of Torres Strait women, GURR ERA OP has a focus on language and will be bilingual in Creole and English.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
