Does your school have a story to tell? A great story can change the way people think about the world around them. Wakakirri is a performing arts festival where schools aim to do just that.
Each year hundreds of schools across Australia create Story-Dances for Wakakirri that reflect students' thoughts, ideas and aspirations. These stories are performed in professional theatres in front of the official 'Wakakirri Panel' who are searching for 'Story of the Year'.
A Wakakirri Story Dance is a 3-7 minute performance by a group of students who theatrically tell a story using a combination of dancing, creative movement and acting to pre-recorded music. Wakakirri is for every School in Australia and has categories for all levels of experience. Every school can enter.
The aim of Wakakirri is to teach students about themselves and others through the creating and sharing of stories and by this process develop students’ educational outcomes, lifestyle choices and community awareness.
Established in 1992, Wakakirri is Australia’s largest Performing Arts Event for schools, involving over 20,000 students across every State and Territory. Over 1 million people watch Wakakirri performances each year.
