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.

This special production pays tribute to the resilience and adaptability of a people who rose to the challenge despite the odds, appropriating the power of the written word to make their own voices ring loud and clear.

CORANDERRK 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.

Warnings: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences are warned that this production contains images of deceased persons

Darren Coggan celebrates 50 years of Cat Stevens as he presents Peace Train 'Remember the Days' a tribute to Cat Stevens.

1967, it's the era of angry young men and British writers, actors and singers are changing the way that society looks at youth. Hair gets longer, dresses get shorter, four young lads from Liverpool are leading the vanguard of a musical and cultural revolution, and in the summer of love, you can't turn on a radio without hearing the hip sounds of a fresh new artist by the name of Cat Stevens.
