Dancing in Shadows – Histories of Nyungar Performance

Friday 6th April / presented by James Hall

It is called Dancing in Shadows – Histories of Nyungar Performance and is by award-winning WA historian and author Anna Haebich. Anna Haebich and Gina Williams join us in the studio. 

The book, which has a foreword by Dr Richard Walley, is the first comprehensive historical study of Nyungar performance culture. It shows how Nyungar people have used performance culture to survive.

Research for the book involved talking with Nyungar people, asking questions and reading new written sources. Anna Haebich has also worked on numerous projects with Nyungar people and organisations over many years.
