Kep Kaatijin is back in 2014!


After a successful premiere season at the 2013 Awesome Festival Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company continues its celebration of 21 years of sharing Aboriginal stories, with a season of Kep Kaatijin at the Western Australian Museum.

Drawing from Yirra Yaakin’s rich history of creating stories for young people, Derek Nannup takes the helm once again to direct the second installment of Yirra Yaakin’s Kaatijin trilogy. Through traditional and contemporary myths and legends, Kep Kaatijin by David Milroy & Derek Nannup brings to life stories from the waterways of the South West of Western Australia.

Kep Kaatijin features performers Taylah Green, Shakara Walley and Ian Wilkes presenting a range of stories and engaging, playful characters. From Mumung, the hungry whale, to Djitty Djitty, the angry willy wagtail, Kep Kaatijin will take young audiences on a fascinating and entertaining journey into traditional Noongar culture.

This season of performances is offered FREE to the Perth community.

Location: Temporary Exhibitions Gallery WA Museum, Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge

When: Saturday 15, 22 & 29 March. Performances at 11am and 2pm daily.

This Museum season is supported by our Community Cultural Partner the Western Australian Museum and Project Partner the Water Corporation.
