Join us to launch Yellamundie (Dharug word for storyteller), the first national playwriting gathering in Sydney in over 20 years, bringing together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers, dramaturgs, directors and actors.

Building on the national legacy of the Black Theatre, Yellamundie [Dharug for storyteller] unearths six new plays by Aboriginal playwrights: Dust by Suzanne (Jub) Clerc, Cuz by Billy Macpherson, Weight by Jada Alberts, First Contact by Jane Harrison, Crowbones and Carnivores by David Milroy and The Lighthouse by Sermsah Bin Saad. After two weeks of workshops, these plays will be read on February 7, 8 and 9.

The Festival Launch features a Keynote address, First Peoples. First Theatre. by Dr Sandra R. Phillips and a reading of an excerpt from This Fella, My Memory created and written by Moogahlin Performing Arts with Linden Wilkinson.

Presented by Moogahlin Performing Arts, Carriageworks and Sydney Festival.
