Sharing Stories - Reconciliation Week 2017

Sharing Stories exploded onto the stage in 2016, when 60 young local Indigenous performers shared their talents, creativity, identity and stories on the stage. Over 1000 community members shared the experience with them. On June 2 2017, we will do it again.

In this intergenerational project, local

Elders share their stories with the younger generation, who are encouraged to creatively express these stories through dance, song, theatre, visual art and puppetry. Delight in stories such as the Birth of the Butterfly, the Flannel Flower and more, as told by a new wave of storytellers.

Sharing Stories is a heart-warming, spectacular, joyous celebration of culture and reconciliation.

National Reconciliation Week runs between 27 May – 3 June. These dates mark two milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey: the 1967 referendum and the historic Mabo decision, respectively. It is a significant week in Australian life for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to get together and learn more about each other.

This show is PAY AS YOU FEEL. When you walk in you will receive an envelope and you decide what you can afford to pay or what you think the performance is worth. Your generous contribution will go towards producing more local stories and performances.
