Witladla

MULTI-DISCIPLINARY ARTIST, Larrakia Elder and contemporary storyteller, Aunty June Mills has big plans to bring her unique show, Witladla, to the Top End. 

The performance, which is currently being adapted as an early language book through an Indigenous  Languages grant, focuses on Witladla, a little owl, and his journey to recover his lost necklace.

Combining original songs, deep cultural knowledge and a range of puppets, Witladla provides pre-school aged children with a fun and exciting opportunity to engage with Larrakia language.

And Aunty June says it’s important experiences like this continue to keep language and culture alive.

“I have a sense of urgency to pass on knowledge and language to children, the next generation. My art is a reinforcement of spiritual 
cultural law … I tell the stories and  what it means to our people,” she says.

With references to traditional  Larrakia designs and fun interactions, it’s sure to be an important learning experience for the little ones.
Keep an eye on Artback NT’s website for more details on where you can catch this beautiful, cultural offering.
