“YUCK comes from regional, remote and isolated towns from all corners of Australia and is passionate about sharing our work and strengthening communities,” she said.

“We want to meet locals, we want to affect towns, and we want to be your mates.”

Deguara said growing up in Broome there wasn’t much to do apart from joining the community circus.

It was this opportunity that has led her to a pathway in the arts, to now direct this in-demand company.
