We're excited to announce Bangarra's first dedicated work for children, Waru – journey of the small turtle. Join our small turtle friend Migi as she undertakes a journey of discovery and survival. 

A contemporary saltwater Lagaw Kazil (Island Children) story inspired by the totemic system of the green turtle, Waru is an interactive and immersive introduction to Torres Strait Islander culture and dance for 3 to 7 year-olds. 

Created by Stephen Page, together with Hunter Page-Lochard and Bangarra alumni Dancers and Choreographers Sani Townson and Elma Kris, Waru provides teachers, parents and care-givers with a unique opportunity to open up conversations about climate change, caring for the environment and the traditional cultural values of respect and reciprocity.
