There is a new puppet show at the Broome Civic Centre called “Song for the Mardoowarra”. There are only two shows in Broome in this season so don’t miss out. They are a school matinee at 11 am and another show at 6.30pm on the 27th July.
A ceremony in 2014 exchanging river water from each river by elders of the Indigenous Nyikina people from the Fitzroy Valley in Western Australia and the elders of the French Ardennes was the impetus for this project to develop further understanding of the universal importance of both river health and the art of storytelling to connect with our natural environments.
