'...A long long time ago
Back when the Dreamtime was a little slow
Sung a bird called Wahn
Wahn the beautiful colourful crow.

'In "Actor On A Box: The Dreaming", director Leah Purcell, will lead us back to the very beginnings of Pamanyungun, respectfully sharing stories passed to her about the great spiritual powers of the ancestors and the awakening of the land - Wake Up Australia!'

The performance fuses' traditional and contemporary storytelling with movement and music, humour and play, to create a very special Dreamtime experience for children.

'This latest Actor on a Box will be a joyful and playful experience, created by Leah Purcell to make some of her people's precious stories accessible to children and families from all communities.'
