Ghenoa Gela - little sister, daughter, granddaughter, comic, teacher, fighter, gold medalist, air guitarist, charmer, TV star, Torres Strait mainlander and walking political statement has produced a show.

My Urrwai tells a sensitive and deeply personal story through both spoken word and movement. This is your invitation to step into the world of Gela and experience the complex political, social, colonial and cultural expectations that she navigates every day. 

"My Urrwai is exquisitely simple storytelling of immense meaning and purpose; engaging, entertaining and enlightening"

"Gela is a dancer, but she is also a vivid storyteller with a forceful dramatic presence...her ability to make you share her joys, sorrows and anger is strong..."
