Performer, Bodyworker and Storyteller

Bella Waru is a performer, bodyworker and storyteller living and learning on unceded Kulin lands. A diasporic Indigenous sovereign, queer, fluid, femme occupation. Waru navigates the honouring, realising and reimagining of their experiences through movement, voice, composition, writings, performance and facilitation. They create from the body as a vessel for personal, ancestral and environmental memory, and as an initiator of resurgence, healing, incantation, communication, manifestation, clearing.
