Wiradjuri dancer Jo Clancy shares gentle, sometimes cheeky stories about caring for Country in a delightful family show mixing puppetry, song and dance. 

Learn dances, tunes and Wiradjuri words with Jo under the shade of the Madhan (Wiradjuri word for tree) on a magical set designed by revered creators of visual theatre, Erth. 

A descendant of the Wiradjuri people of Western NSW, Jo Clancy is a First Nations choreographer, dancer, mentor and teacher who lives on Gundungurra and Darug Country in the Blue Mountains.  

The first Aboriginal person to gain a Bachelor of Arts in Dance in NSW, Jo Clancy is the current Head of Cultural Practice at NAISDA Dance College, and founded her own company Wagana Aboriginal Dancers.  

She has spent three decades developing contemporary Aboriginal dance works and education projects across Australia and internationally in festivals and major events in Glasgow, Copenhagen, Hawaii and Vancouver.

This is a Covid-Safe event, find out more on the Sydney Festival website.
