Koolbardi wer Wardong

Friday 12th August 2022

Aliwa yeyi! (Look out now!) Feathers will fly in this cautionary tale.

Koolbardi the Magpie and Wardong the Crow are two very proud, vain, jealous brothers. Watch as their cunning, rivalry and one-upmanship brings them unstuck in spectacular fashion.

Set on Noongar Boodja (the south west corner of Western Australia), we invite you to join us for a journey back to the Nyittiny, the time of Creation, where love, loyalty, betrayal and jealousy are all stretched to their limits. Because pride always comes before the fall.

Award winning songwriters and story tellers, Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse weave magic in a world first, brought to life under the deft direction of Matt Reuben James Ward. Experience the incredible beauty of the language of this land as this production promises to delight audiences of all ages.


Koolbardi wer Wardong is a Wesfarmers Arts Commission. The Kalgoorlie tour is supported by Opera in the Regions Partner Minderoo Foundation, Playing WA and Feilman Foundation. Goldfields Children’s Chorus is supported by Lotterywest and choreographer is supported by the Bendat Family Foundation.
