* AUSLAN Interpreted. Followed by Q&A hosted by UTS
You’re invited to the wedding reception of Māori woman Hera and Aboriginal man Kane, two ambitious and deeply in love career-hotshots who have their perfect day flawlessly mapped out. But there’s one thing Hera and Kane can’t control…their families.
As the biggest mob of Aunties, Uncles and cousins from both sides of the ‘ditch’ get worked up for the blackest wedding ever, reality sinks in fast. Will this international love story bring two strong cultures together, or will it blow Hera and Kane’s world apart?
Featuring a live band rocking out retro classics, BLACK TIES is an irreverent, vibrant and hilarious new work from two leading First Nations theatre companies: ILBIJERRI Theatre Company (Australia) and Te Rēhia Theatre (Aotearoa/New Zealand).
With an unrivaled cast including Uncle Jack Charles, Mark Coles Smith, Lisa Maza and Brady Peeti, and created by a crack team of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Māori artists, BLACK TIES reimagines the popular wedding rom-com from a distinctively First Nations perspective.
This will be a party to remember. Don your deadliest outfit and most gamin fascinator and be there!
