Presented by She Said Theatre
A verbatim theatre piece, HART examines the difficult and harrowing history of the Stolen Generations from the perspectives of four Noongar men spanning three generations – including performer Ian Michael, who won the Melbourne Fringe Best Emerging Indigenous Artist award for HART.
Michael says, “As a young Indigenous person and performer, it’s vital to be able to tell the stories and the truth from my people. Especially stories of survival and resilience.”
Director Penny Harpham shares Michael’s passion for the project, explaining, “Making HART has been a way for us to educate each other, to keep informed, and to create a considered and highly personal shared experience. She Said, is committed to creating a space for all voices – not just the dominant or the popular – to be heard.” Before arriving in Adelaide, HART will tour to the Basement Theatre in Auckland and BATS Theatre in Wellington for NZ Fringe this February, also winning the Tiki Tour Ready Award at Melbourne Fringe 2015.
“A brave and quietly devastating performance…Moving theatre that handles some emotionally harrowing material with dignity and grace.”
