The Storyteller is sad to announce the postponement of their production of An Indigenous Trilogy that was scheduled to be presented by La Mama theatre in November.
The production has taken the difficult step to postpone the season due to the uncertainty around COVID-19 lockdowns and the impact this may have on rehearsals. This precious story has been in development for over 20 years, and they intend to give the work its best possible life.
Although a disappointing development, we are confident in the new dates secured for May 2022.
A beautiful, heartbreaking play of the Indigenous Gothic genre that provides spiritual reprieve through Creation Stories from the difficult realities of the real-world story.
An Aboriginal man from the stolen generation is working in his Aboriginal community as a front-line juvenile justice worker, he comes into contact with many Aboriginal adolescent young people who come into contact with the criminal justice system. This story is about how the issues impact not only the young person but their friends, their family, their community, the society they live in and ultimately the Aboriginal worker who is trying to support them.
This script received the State Library of Victoria R.E Ross Trust Development Award in 2010 and was presented as a reading at the World Theatre Festival in 2011 amongst other awards and developments.
Also a part of the DURATIONAL PERFORMANCES: Thurs 2nd Dec, Sat 4th Dec & Sun 5th Dec from 2 pm.
Content warning: *Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this trilogy contains adult themes, references to deaths in custody of First Nations people and some coarse language.
