We extend this respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, recognising their resilience and ongoing connection to land, water and culture, despite ongoing colonial interruption and genocide.
Always was, always will be, sacred Indigenous land.

“Mixing sketch and stand-up, these four aboriginal comedians exude an impressive raw energy” – 'Chortle' UK Comedy Guide
IILBIJERRI Theatre presented three bags full of hot Indigenous comedians, carving up post-apology Australia with a cracking night of black sketch comedy. This is The New Black. And it’s hilarious.
