An hour before sunset, a guide meets you at the foot of a bridge on the banks of Lake Monger.
Kaya wanjoo ngany boodja, Galup.
Welcome to my home, Galup – place of fire
Galup is an interactive walking performance on-country that brings to life largely unknown histories of this area.
Step back in time to the 1830s with Noongar performer Ian Wilkes as your guide. Throughout the show, Ian takes on a range of characters guiding you through real events from our collective past and invites you to join in and be part of the show.
Everyday hundreds of people visit Lake Monger without knowing the events that happened here or understanding its significant place in history. Galup seeks to change that, by uncovering the truth with a profound participatory experience.
Created by Ian Wilkes and artist/filmmaker Poppy van Oorde-Grainger, with an oral history from Elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts, this intimate, truth-telling performance will resonate with you long after you leave.
