Ialaru: A Celebration

If you have been a part of the Yirra Yaakin story in the last 21 years, we want to hear from you!

In 2014, Yirra Yaakin will be celebrating 21 years as Western Australia’s leading Aboriginal performing arts company.

This exclusive event is a vivid exploration of friendships and successes, shared with an exciting line up of artists and special guests including: Ernie Dingo, Richard Walley & the Middar Dancers, David Milroy (and the Wilarra band), Derek Nannup, Kelton Pell, Kyle J Morrison, Miranda Tapsell, Kylie Farmer, MC Optamus and Downsyde. With performances from hit shows such as Waltzing the Wilarra, Alice, Windmill Baby, Good Lovin’ and many more. This shared story will be told in an evening of live music, dance and song, from the traditional through to the contemporary, with a focus on the major works and achievements of the company.

We invite former employees, artists, members & those who have worked with the company in any capacity to join us in celebrating WA Aboriginal culture – past, present and future.

Please call us on (08) 9202 1966 or email yy@yirrayaakin.com.au.
