A GRIPPING FIGHT FOR RIGHTS THAT SHOULD HAVE CHANGED HISTORY

‘We will show the country that it will work.’ In 1881, the men and women of Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve had a simple and revolutionary goal: to continue the brilliant experiment in self-determination they had pioneered on the scrap of country left to them.

But the law said they needed permission. They went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board at a Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry to be allowed to continue.

CORANDERRK recreates compelling history on stage. It revives the voices of all those, black and white,
who fought for a better pact between the country’s oldest and newest inhabitants.

This special production pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite the odds.

CORANDERRK is a collaboration between leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, researchers, education experts and community members. The production aims to encourage a shared understanding of the past between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.

The multi award winning Trevor Jamieson (ClevermanThe Secret River, Namatjira, Ngaparti {One}) is charismatic and moving in the lead role.
