A STELLAR group of young performers and health workers last week used their artistic skills to teach young Pilbara people about leading a healthy life.

A cast of four indigenous WAAPA graduates performed in Palmyra resident David Milroy’s play Good Lovin, which focused on teaching young people about respectful relationships as well as self-respect.

Award-winning indigenous playwright Milroy used his skills as a writer to ensure the messages about practising safe sex and not being forced to have intercourse too early were communicated without judgment and in a way young people didn’t feel embarrassed.

Throughout the 30-minute performance, the audience was taken on a short journey into the lives of young people and how, if they were not too careful, they could be forced to make the wrong decisions.

It is tightly written and interspersed with comedy, hip-hop dancing and rap music.

The Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company has partnered with Chevron Australia and the Gorgon Project.
