IN CONVERSATION WITH YIRRA YAAKIN
Contemporary Aboriginal theatre in WA is going from strength to strength, however there are still conversations to be had and challenges to face. Cultural safety, community support and continued decolonisation are some of the topics important in making Aboriginal theatre in Australia today. Most importantly, who are our future Aboriginal cultural leaders and theatre makers, and what do their stories look and sound like?
Join some of Perth’s best emerging Aboriginal theatre makers including Barbara Hostalek and Andrea Fernandez for two short play-readings (Cracked & Bollywood Dreaming) followed by a conversation about the state of Aboriginal Theatre in Western Australia.
This evening is supported by Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company.
