Grab all your sisters and soul sistas for a Moorditj / Eccelente night out … fellas welcome too!

We're proud to be presenting Sista Girl with our co-producer, the State Theatre Company of South Australia! 12 performances only, including matinee sessions on the 10, 15 & 17 August (including post show Q & A’s).
 
But first, here’s a few words from the director of Sista Girl, Kyle J Morrison on why he wanted to work on this production, plus reviews from our Adelaide season in May and June this year.
 
“When I first heard about this project I was immediately interested. The idea of having a shared narrative between two rarely heard female voices on our main stages is an idea we should all get used to. Elena Carapetis and Alexis West are the voices of an exciting future of more gender equality and culturally diverse theatre for our national audiences. This is the world I want to hear more of - the stories of our women that have inherited 60,000+ years of cultural and spiritual heritage and the trauma of our national history alongside the stories from our sisters who inherited the cultures and trauma of the women who immigrated here from war-torn Europe.
 
Sista Girl is the story of modern Australia that I want to hear, and working with such a strong team of skilled and generous artists gives me a confident image of our artistic future as a country.” – Kyle J Morrison, Artistic Director of Yirra Yaakin.

What’s the show about?
 
Sista Girl is a brand new Australian work, co-written by Elena Carapetis and Alexis West. Two half-sisters (A First Nations woman and an Italian-Australian woman) meet after the death of their father, in an exploration of the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal migrant Australians.
 
Reviews
 
“It is a deftly understated performance, rich in wry comedy and yearning for lost connections.” The Australian

“Tracksuit-wearing Georgie, played by Nadia Rossi, regales us with outrageously comical Italian-Australian observations and quick one-liners about her fellow bus travellers while revealing a strong sense of family and generosity of spirit beneath her sassy, socially struggling exterior.” The Advertiser

“It’s one not to be missed.” In Daily

“Stepping into the role of Nakisha at short notice, Sharni McDermott is wonderfully ebullient and seemingly confident as she straddles the line between black and white societies, giving both a healthy serve as she races to business meetings in her flash BMW.” The Advertiser

“Brilliantly humorous, tear-jerking and heart-warming production.” Glam Adelaide
