Coranderrk: We Will Show The Country

La Mama Theatre

Event Date: 3 August 2016 to 7 August 2016
Author / Presenters: By Giordano Nanni and Andrea James

In 1881, the people of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Station took on the Board for the Protection of Aborigines in a fight for justice, dignity and self- determination. Today, we bring their voices back to life through a verbatim reading and live performance of their testimonies before the Coranderrk Parliamentary Inquiry. Coranderrk: We Will Show The Country pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite all odds, and celebrates the spirit of friendship and genuine collaboration between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in pursuit of justice.

Some performances will be followed by a Q & A. For details, contact La Mama.
