This performance will not be proceeding on Monday 30 August 7.15pm as the ACT is currently in lockdown and Canberra Theatre Centre is closed. We’re working with the promoters to reschedule and will contact ticketholders with more information as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience while we work through options. We look forward to seeing you (and Ken Behrens) at the theatre soon.

Australia’s largest national performing arts event for schools.

Great stories inspire change. Wakakirri is a National Story-Dance Festival where schools aim to do just that! Established in 1992, Wakakirri is Australia’s largest performing arts event for schools, involving over 20,000 students annually. Each year hundreds of schools across Australia create Story-Dances for Wakakirri that reflect their students’ 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’. Every year over 1 million people watch Wakakirri performances.
