Honest, raw and poignant, Coranderrk recreates an 1881 Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry where the people of Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board.
Their goal was both simple and revolutionary: to be allowed to continue the brilliant experiment in self-determination they had pioneered on the scrap of country left to them.
The performance revives the voices, black and white, who fought for a better pact between the country’s oldest and newest inhabitants.
This show is great theatre, and great history; paying tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite the odds, appropriating the power of the written word to make their voices ring loud and clear.
