Yirra Yaakin, which means “Stand Tall” in Noongar language, has been producing and presenting an annual program of new Indigenous theatre and maintained a strong focus on education and youth programs since it’s inception. More than 15 original youth-focused productions have been developed in that time, undertaking scores of residencies and workshops across WA.
The company has commissioned and premiered over 50 new theatre works. These include major Festival presentations such as WALTZING THE WILARRA, ONE DAY IN 67, ALIWAH, WINDMILL BABY and CRUEL WILD WOMAN. Contributing writers have included Dallas Winmar, Mitch Torres, David Milroy, Sally Morgan and Jim Holland.
The company is committed to producing and presenting a mixture of contemporary and classic Indigenous theatre, balanced with our existing community service and education programs.
