A retrospective exhibition of the Ilbijerri Theatre Company.
“It all started with a group of Indigenous actors sitting around in a backyard saying ‘we need our own theatre company to tell our stories our way’,” says Rachael Maza Long, Ilbijerri’s Artistic Director. From this passion, a professional theatre company was born, whose plays explore a range of complex and controversial issues from a uniquely Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective. This belief in “the power of black voices telling black stories” still drives the company.
The exhibition will feature elements of sets, props and photography from previous productions as well as a behind the scenes look at life in Ilbijerri.
