 A definitive story from our neglected Indigenous history

This special production by ILBIJERRI Theatre Company pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to a challenge despite the odds, appropriating the power of the written word to make their own voices ring loud and clear. Coranderrk recreates the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881, where the men and women of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences should be aware that this production contains images of deceased persons. It deals with real historical issues. The performers are all Indigenous Australians.

There are workshops and educational resources associated with this performance.

Reviews

“It is honest, open, raw, emotional, poignant, true. There is a strong spirit in Coranderrk. And to sit in a crowded darkened theatre and witness it, is a truly humbling experience.” The Spell of Waking Hours

 “This superb performance is a painful reminder of ‘what could have been’ in terms of Aboriginal self-determination.” ArtsHub

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