WOMEN OF SONG – CURATED BY IAIN GRANDAGE

The daughter of a Serbian immigrant father and an Aboriginal mother from North West Arnhem Land near the Blythe River, Ursula Yovich grew up in Darwin.

In 2016 she was awarded the prestigious Sydney Myer Individual Award in recognition of her outstanding body of work in theatre, which includes appearances in Capricornia (for which she also won a Helpmann Award in 2007), Mother Courage and Her Children, The Sapphires, The Adventures of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie, and her own play Barbara and the Camp Dogs (co-written with Alana Valentine) which premiered at Belvoir St Theatre. She has also starred in the films Jindabyne (2006), Australia (2008), and Goldstone (2016). UKARIA is proud to present one of the most compelling voices of Indigenous Australia.

‘Collaborations with Indigenous artists are at the core of my practice. They are my request to belong. This country has stories and songs embedded in its geology – and these are not my songs to sing. But through various opportunities, I have had the privilege of collaborating with many of Australia’s finest Indigenous artists, and they have welcomed me and my music to their campfire, and through them I feel more embedded in this country.’
