On Saturday May 4 at 5.45pm, Roebuck Bay will light up with giant illuminated puppets, storytelling, dance and original music in one of Theatre Kimberley’s biggest collaborative works. Bring friends and family, a picnic, something to sit on and enjoy the event of the year!
The Shorebird Quest is a co-creation between Theatre Kimberley, the Broome Bird Observatory, Parks and Wildlife Services’ Yawuru rangers, Nyamba Buru Yawuru Country managers and local schools.
The puppets are only half of the Shorebird Quest – the other is incredible original live music from magical musical director Jaime Jackett, a bird nerd and musician originally from Canada, co-written with Hayden Kutze. WoW!!
Follow Curtis the Curlew on his migration from Siberia to Broome through a fusion of Yawuru Country knowledge, musical theatre and puppetry.
This project is made possible with support from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund; the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions; Healthway, promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message, and the Broome Community.
Roebuck Bay Working Group is comprised of Traditional Owners and government, local community, conservation groups and business. We work collaboratively to solve issues, raise awareness and encourage research and monitoring which supports responsible management and protection of Roebuck Bay.
