About the Show
Between school, court, family dramas and stints in The Bighouse, will Chris ever make it as a rapper?
In a troubled regional town, young Aboriginal defendant Chris’ rap aspirations compete for time with his court appearances and meetings with lawyers, psychologists and social workers.
Combining the rhythm and cultural force of hip hop with theatre, Bighouse Dreaming is a provocative and urgent performance that holds an unflinching lens to the justice system, youth prisons and Australian masculinity – black and white.
Bighouse Dreaming is a multi-award winning work from Arrernte writer-performer Declan Furber Gillick.
