Coranderrk is about what might have been.At a Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881, the men and women of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board. Their goal was both simple and revolutionary: to be allowed to continue the brilliant experiment in self-determination they had pioneered for themselves on the scrap of country left to them.Coranderrk recreates the Inquiry. This is both great theatre and great history. It revives the voices of all those, black and white, who fought for a better pact between the country’s oldest and newest inhabitants.Coranderrk is a collaboration between leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, researchers, education experts and community members. The production aims to encourage a shared understanding of the past between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.Lead actor Trevor Jamieson is a widely recognised and celebrated performer. He played Uncle Max in the ABC Television series Cleverman and starred in both the ABC Television mini-series and Sydney Theatre Company national tour of The Secret River.This tour is proudly supported by Regional Arts Victoria, Creative Victoria, Australia Council and presented by ILBIJERRI Theatre Company and Belvoir Theatre Tickets on sale now.
