521 Queensberry St,
On the banks of the Murray, sacred trees, familiar fishing holes, cheeky dingoes, min-min lights and the spirits of those who went before weave a deep connection to the land. Music, puppetry and touches of magic realism blend the dreaming and memories of Australia’s colonial past with the present. Meanwhile, in a courtroom in Melbourne, members of the Yorta Yorta Aboriginal nation struggle to prove a claim to their land.
Yanagai! Yanagai! brings together a clan of Aboriginal storytellers and music to celebrate their survival as an Aboriginal nation in a captivating tale of powerful and generous vision.
