aboriginal arts partnerships
In 2016 we are collaborating with Tasmanian Aboriginal artists to write, produce and tour a new work of Aboriginal Theatre and to make a suite of films with community that explore connection to country and identity.
Emerging Aboriginal playwright Nathan Maynard is writing a play for young people titled ‘A so not Traditional Story,’ which uses comedy and physical theatre to explore contemporary Aboriginal identity and debunk some of the myths associated with the ‘settlement of Australia.’
A production will be toured to Tasmanian regional schools in 2017.
The films about connection to country will be made on the Bass Strait Islands and other rural areas of Tasmania.
