In the last week of April, a team of theatre, music and digital media professionals gathered in Roebourne to commence working on the Yijala Yala Project major performance piece, Hipbone Sticking Out. The week included the visitors being guided through the community of Roebourne, learning about Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi culture and history and visiting significant places in the region, as well as workshops and collaborations between the talented group of artists. The scope of the week was for the look, sound and feel of the theatre work to begin to emerge, with the landscape, history and industry all providing inspiration and ideas. The team will come back together in June for further workshops with the community, focusing on performance and script.
