A WAKE

By Susie Skinner

You are invited to A Wake in the Goolwa bird hide to celebrate the life and grieve the death of Yarluwar – Ruwe (Sea Country) and the mighty Murray River. During Kumawuki you might see a woman who has stepped straight out of the 1964 Antonioni film The Red Desert. Who is she and what is she looking for? Follow this puzzling woman to the Goolwa bird hide where A Wake is taking place. The great Murray Darling River is dead and three musicians and a mysterious Dude are hosting A Wake. Sit in an intimate setting and let the music wash over you and remember the good old days of Yarluwar – Ruwe (Sea Country) and the mighty Murray River.
The River Is Dead. Long Live The River.

Contributing artists are The Yearlings, Jacques Soddell and Jamie Brown and in consultation with Ngarrindjeri Elder Aunty Eileen McHughes

Location: The Bird Hide - Barrage Road (across from #17), Goolwa
