La Mama’s Disability Access Program has been published!

The La Mama Access Program aims to engage the participation of artists and community members who face challenges in accessing arts and cultural opportunities.

As part of our commitment to improving La Mama’s accessibility, with assistance from all who completed our survey in January, we are publishing our 2015 – 2018 Disability Action Plan to welcome all audiences. The initiatives contained in La Mama’s Disability Action Plan will deliver benefits for all patrons and artists as well as demonstrate to the community that improving access is an ongoing organisational commitment for La Mama Theatre.

You can consult the online version of our Disability Action Plan just over HERE!

THE STITCH #4: CORANDERRK: WE WILL SHOW THE COUNTRY
with Liz Jones

Liz Jones is the Artistic Director and CEO of La Mama. She is an actor, educator and life-long contributor to the arts and human kind in general. Liz Jones is also my boss. She also happens to be performing in one of the most important theatrical productions of 2015, Coranderrk: We Will Show The Country. A story that pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite all odds.

Tell me a little about the history behind Coranderrk for those who aren’t familiar with it.

Liz: “This piece of work is what’s called verbatim theatre and it’s actually based on the minutes of evidence from a legal hearing in 1881. In the 1850’s a reserve station was formed in Healesville called Coranderrk for all the Aboriginals who were being driven off their land from all around Australia. While it was being run by the Reverend Green (played by David Patterson) it was considered to be a happy mission but it was regarded with great suspicion by the settlers – who apart from anything else lusted after the land. They drove the Reverend Green away and replaced him with the Reverend Strickland (played by Sid Brisbane), a horrible man that the aboriginals hated. This is why it was such an important case, because the Aborigines took the white people who were running the mission to court for malpractice.”
