“It is honest, open, raw, emotional, poignant; true. There is a strong spirit in Coranderrk. And to sit in a crowded darkened theatre and witness it, is a truly humbling experience.” The Spell of Waking Hours.

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.

Warnings: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences are warned that this production contains images of deceased persons.
