Coranderrk School Performance

Thursday, April 27, 2017 - 1:00pm
Lighthouse Theatre

PROUDLY SUPPORTED BY

70 minutes
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.
