About the Show
Join us for an ultra-blak invigoration station of deadly inspiration.
Be elevated by the presentation of select excerpts from three fresh new scripts by cutting edge First Nations playwrights: Monica Karo, Nazree Dickerson and Blayne Welsh. These daring works have been developed through ILBIJERRI’s BlackWrights Creators Program, an industry incubator empowering artists in the development of new First Nations theatre.
The showcase will also include a line-up of First Nations emerging talent over kai kai(fancy nibbles) and panel yarns with the writers, actors and ILBIJERRI’s Artistic Director Rachael Maza (winner of the 2019 Australia Council Award for Theatre).
