PRIMARY AND SECONDARY students across Australia have expressed the issues important to them, in performances for the 2016 Wakakirri performing arts showcases.
Each year hundreds of schools across Australia create ‘story dances’ for Wakakirri that reflect their students’ thoughts, ideas and aspirations. A Wakakirri Story Dance is a 3-7 minute performance using any combination of dance, creative movement, acting, music, props, costumes, sets, and in some cases, film, projections and singing.
Here’s an example of a story, this one from Telopea Park School: “Their habitat is disappearing … Two little polar bears, guided by a star, are on a mission to find out why this is happening. Whose fault is it? The water? The air? The fire? The earth? What will they discover at the end of their quest?”
