After postponing earlier in the year due to COVID lockdowns, the Burrundi Theatre for Performing Arts are proud to introduce Warangesda, performed on the lands of the Gadigal people. The story delves into the untold truth of first contact in 1880 on the lands of Wiradjuri, and the experiences in both ancestral and modern day survival.
Many of the respective creatives and cast members are Wiradjuri descendants of Warangesda. Burrundi Theatre explores Warangesda’s origins at the time of Gribble, re-telling stories of the spiritual convergence between Christianity and Culture. A reliving of stories through the eyes and personal writings of Gribble himself.
The story of Warangesda follows a young man’s ascendance, connecting him over many lifetimes relentless in his own reality. The legacy of surviving as a Wiradjuri man. No name, no fixed address, surrendering to no one, nowhere is his home. He is his father, his uncle and his grandfather, but none are him.
Directed by Kerry Johnson, Warangesda is a cultural commentary not to be missed.
