Latham Snipe (On Going)

The Snipe is a migratory bird, arriving at Puyup-kil (Port Fairy) in August and September. The Song, Din Warta Partpart-i (Here comes a bird) uses music as means of teach new understandings gained from the ongoing Latham Snipe Project .

six seasons

In 2016 Corey was commissioned to create an original work for the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival NAB Opening Gala. 

'Our welcoming event starts with Six Seasons – a magical newly commissioned work from young Gunditjmara man Corey Theatre that is part language reclamation, part language learning and part cultural offering. Featuring the ancient voice of Archie Roach with the youthful voices of local schoolchildren, this new work sheds light on the transformations of country that the indigenous changes of season bring, and invites us to the campfire of shared understanding'

Malpa Ngurkantankuntja

The Malpa Ngurkantankuntja project was an initiative of the Ptijantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Education Committee (PYEC) abd members of the Pukutja community and SHine SA. The resources has been developed for Anangu education works and teachers that work on the APY lands. 

The resource examines the concept of Malpa Ngurkantankuntja: malpa means friend or partner and in Pitjantjatjara and ngurkantankuntja means choose, which gives the phrase choosing a partner. The Video Malpa Ngurkantankuntja (on the attached DVD) explores Anangu perspectives on relationships and the types of behaviours that foster healthy relationships. The resource also explores traditional kinship and family structures and the role that these structures play in the formation of healthy culturally appropriate relationships.
