Puppets, song, dance combine to make this a whole family adventure featuring the language and rhyme of the Tiwi Islands, north of Darwin. Packed with spirit and humor, Wulamanayuwi will delight audiences young and old. “Writer-performer Jason De Santis took a Dreamtime story, added a classic European fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and mixed in some pop culture references a la Shrek. The result was Wulamanayuwi and the Seven Pamanui.” ArtsHub
