A reminder not miss this brilliant – and very important – festival which features three terrific Australian plays by Justin Fleming.
It’s an extraordinary event with much to offer on themes of African refugee, Indigenous Australian, Muslim, Asian and general multicultural Australia… and where all our stories meet!
The plays feature a terrific cast (including some up-and-coming NIDA-trained pros and a few ‘names’ from stage and screen – plus some moving performances from the African actors) who are acting their socks off too!
A must-see… AND WE HAVE FREE TICKETS FOR THIS THURS GALA – see below!
After an introductory run at NIDA last week, it settles in the Bondi Pavilion this week with opening night for Coup d’Etat on Wednesday 8 August… and the two one-act plays after that.
AND special fundraisers too:
- Thurs 9 August for KBH Corporation (Kinchella Boys Home – “The Stolen Generation”) in the presence of NSW Governor Marie Bashir – featuring Aboriginal music and dance and a performance of “Junction”; and
- Thurs 16 August for SSEG (South Sudan Educates Girls) – featuring African music and dance as well as performance of “A Land Beyond the River”;
And remember throughout the month the art exhibition (featuring Indigenous art and photography as well as work by Villawood detainees) continues in the Bondi Pav foyer.
A limited number of free double passes are available to win
