Winyanboga Yurringa

Written and Directed by Andrea James

A Moogahlin Performing Arts Production


Six Aboriginal Women. On Country. Their attempts to connect with land and each other; thwarted by arguments about identity, beauty and boyfriends. Guided by their Auntie/Sister/Cousin Neecy, the women eventually discover that this isn’t any old camping trip and that their connection to country and each other runs deeper than they could ever have imagined.

Written and directed by Yorta Yorta/Kurnai woman Andrea James, Winyanboga Yurringa is inspired by Hyllus Maris and Sonia Borg’s iconic Women of the Sun and the provocative imagery of Wathaurong artist Bindi Cole.

True, poetic, sometimes crude and often humorous; Winyanboga Yurringa takes the intergenerational pulse of Aboriginal women today to expose the complexity and beauty of women’s business and our enduring connection to country.

Come sit with us.

Cast includes: Kylie Coolwell, Matilda Brown, Pam Young, Angeline Penrith, Alexis Lane and Tessa Rose. 

Winyanboga Yurringa features on Radio National’s Books and Arts show - listen to the audio here.
