Sydney Performance Night
Great Stories can open hearts and minds and inspire change. Wakakirri is a Story-Dance festival where schools aim to do just that! Created in 1992 Wakakirri is Australia’s largest national performing arts event for schools. Does your school have a story to tell? It’s time to get involved!
Each year hundreds of schools across Australia create Story-Dances for Wakakirri that reflect student’s 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’.
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.
