About the show
Aliwa yeyi! (Look out now)! Feathers will fly in this cautionary tale.
Koolbardi the Magpie and Wardong the Crow are two very proud, very vain, very jealous brothers. Watch as their cunning, their rivalry and one-upmanship brings them unstuck in spectacular fashion.
We invite you to join us for a journey back to the Nyittiny, the time of Creation, where love, loyalty, betrayal and jealousy are all stretched to their limits. Because pride always comes before the fall.
Award winning songwriters and story tellers Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse weave magic in this five-star production brought to life under the deft direction of Matt Reuben James Ward. Experience the incredible beauty of the language of this land in a production that promises to delight audiences of all ages.
