A story with a little bit of truth and a little bit of make believe, one might say it was A Not So Traditional Story…

Once upon a time two kids, Wurangkili, (who is keen on adventure) and Timita, (who takes a bit of convincing), are crashed upon by an Alien from a faraway land. Join the gang as they embark on an epic quest across the island of lutruwita in search of the ‘oldest of old elders’, meeting up with some hilarious and unique friends along the way.

This beautiful and funny production uses masks, shadow puppetry and physical theatre to tell an important story of Indigenous culture, identity, bravery and friendship.
