ABOUT THE SHOW

What would you do if you could never go home?

Join four mainland-born Torres Strait Islander women as they battle against the rising tide threatening their home, culture and identity.

GURR ERA OP (“the face of the sea” in Meriam Mir) is a celebratory sharing of culture and a call to action in the face of climate devastation, interweaving hybrid Torres Strait Islander contemporary storytelling, movement and spoken word.

Award-winning choreographer and performer Ghenoa Gela presents her landmark work, a vivid imagining of loss, and a call to action for a better future.

Please note: Floor Seating will be on cushions or similar.
