Created by IDJA Dance Theatre, Lu’arn is contemporary dance, ritual and puppetry inspired by a traditional Boon Wurrung (Melbourne language group) story, as told by Senior Elder, Aunty Carolyn Briggs. It sings the journey of Lu’arn, an important figure in the Boon Wurrung culture as the first initiate and instructor of Men’s Lore. Lu’arn will be in creative development throughout 2011 and will premiere in Melbourne in February 2012. Little Wing is designing and making puppets for the production.
