Koolbardi wer Wardong Regional Tour

Koolbardi the Magpie and Wardong the Crow are two very proud, very vain, very jealous brothers. Watch as their cunning, their rivalry and one-upmanship brings them unstuck in spectacular fashion.

We invite you to join us for a journey back to the Nyittiny, the time of Creation, where love, loyalty, betrayal and jealousy are all stretched to their limits. Because pride always comes before the fall.
