Yirra Yaakin present a season of Kaarla Kaatijin during the 2013 April school holidays: 22 April – 3 May 2013.

Kaarla Kaatijin (Noongar translation ‘to understand fire’) is a theatre production, suitable for families with children aged four (4) plus. Performances involve four (4) actors and a variety of musical instruments.

KAARLA KAATIJIN (which in Noongar means ‘to understand fire’) is the first story in a trilogy of productions centred around Noongar language and culture. The story follows the plight of the birds and animals of the land suffering an endless, icy winter. Together they undertake a dangerous and brave mission to catch ‘Kaarla’ (fire) and bring it back to warm the land once more. Rich in storytelling and beautifully written characters, KAARLA KAATIJIN builds on Yirra Yaakin’s excellent reputation for high quality Indigenous theatre for young people. Backed by live music, this enchanting Western Australian story celebrates local culture and heritage in a refreshingly youthful and vibrant way.
