A NOT SO TRADITIONAL STORY

 

Adventure, laughs and contemporary Tasmanian Aboriginal culture.

 

 

………………………………………………..

 

 

Two young ‘uns, Wurangkili and Timita, meet a mysterious alien named River when he gets lost in their country on his flying canoe. With River’s pet Wombat “Wombie” in tow, they all go on a journey to find the meaning of a mysterious object, getting clues from an Eagle, a Lizard and a Kangaroo they meet along the way.

 

A Not So Traditional Story is a rare and memorable performance that combines Terrapin’s renowned skill in entertaining and engaging children with the voice of a new generation of Tasmanian Aboriginal performing artists.
