Ruby awards nominations 2017

Yirra Yaakin is in the running for a Ruby Award for Sista Girl with our koordahs, State Theatre Company South Australia.

Created as part of State Theatre Company’s Education Show program in collaboration with Yirra Yaakin, Sista Girl explored the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians via the story of two women who share a white father. Co-written by Elena Carapetis and Alexis West, the funny and poignant play spoke directly to audiences about questions of identity, grief and the complex nature of family, and toured extensively throughout regional South Australia before showing at the Space Theatre in Adelaide and Subiaco Arts Centre in Perth.
