Yirra Yaakin means "stand tall" in the Noongar language
From world class theatre company to hands-on community development leader, Yirra Yaakin Noongar
Theatre continues to be Australia's leading Aboriginal theatre company and Western Australia's only
indigenous performing arts company.
Yirra Yaakin is based in Perth in the heart of the Noongar Nation - a distinct Aboriginal cultural group from the
South West of Western Australia. Formed in 1993, Yirra Yaakin provides the means and environment to assist
the nurturing of Aboriginal community cultural development on a Statewide basis. Yirra Yaakin's commitment
and energy has inspired an active and diverse range of artistic, educational and developmental projects.
Our annual program of activities is developmental in nature and includes projects as far ranging and diverse
as youth arts residencies in the Pilbara, dance workshops in Kwinana, performances at National Festivals,
world premieres of plays by leading Aboriginal writers.
