AdvertisementAN ANCIENT NOONGAR STORY OF STAR-CROSSED LOVERS...
Wundig is a handsome young man, and much-loved member of the Hills people. Wilura is a beautiful young woman adored by her family, the Grass people.
Wundig wer Wilura (Wundig and Wilura) is an ancient Noongar story of star-crossed lovers, who break the bounds of lore and custom, and have their souls forever banished to Mount Brown (Wongborel) and Mount Bakewell (Walwalling) in York, Western Australia.
Family and connection to country, obligation and rebellion, adoration and betrayal, love and war. In the face of catastrophic consequences, how far would you go for love?
Sung in Noongar, this striking new production from award-winning songwriters and storytellers Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse is a new Wesfarmers Arts Commission that will premiere in Perth Festival.
