GPAC's 2017 Deakin University Theatre Season


ILBIJERRI Theatre Company & Belvoir
By Andrea James &
Giordano Nanni


Coranderrk is about what might have been.

At a Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881, the men and women of the 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.

Coranderrk recreates that Inquiry. This is both great theatre and great history. 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, appropriating the power of the written word to make their own voices ring loud and clear.

“What Ilbijerri is able to take from this painful history is a story of resistance and of strength. ★★★★” - The Age
