WA Museum and Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company are proud to present the world premiere of Boodjar Kaatijin.Adults and children alike will be spellbound by puppetry, masks and glow in the dark elements in this play, the third instalment of the Kaatijin series.

Through a collection of four stories based on Noongar knowledge and storytelling, audiences will learn about The First Sunrise; The Creation of Kings Park and How the Kangaroo Got Its Colour; How the Echidna Got Its Spikes; and The Creation of Wave Rock and The Stars. This new work is based on the creation stories in and around the Perth metropolitan area, giving audiences a glimpse of the cultural significance of the places in which we live.
