Wakakirri Story-Dance Challenge


Does Your School Have a Story to Tell? A great story can change the way people think about the world around them. Wakakirri is a performing arts festival where schools aim to do just that. Each year hundreds of schools across Australia create Story-Dances for Wakakirri that reflect student’s thoughts, ideas and aspirations. These stories are performed in professional theatres in front of the official ‘Wakakirri Panel’ who are searching for ‘Story of the Year’.

Established in 1992, Wakakirri is Australia’s largest Performing Arts Event for schools, involving over 20,000 students across every State and Territory. Over 1 million people watch Wakakirri performances each year. You can catch Wakakirri at the Civic Theatre Newcastle on Monday the 5th of August. Visit www.civictheatrenewcastle.com.au<
