BlackWrights Showcase at Melbourne Festival

Southbank Theatre, The Lawler, 140 Southbank Blvd, Southbank

Past Production

An ultra-blak invigoration station of deadly inspiration.

Be elevated by the presentation of select excerpts from three fresh new scripts by cutting edge First Nations playwrights: Monica Karo, Nazaree Dickerson and Blayne Welsh. These daring works have been developed through ILBIJERRI’s BlackWrights Creators Program, an industry incubator empowering artists in the development of new First Nations theatre.

The showcase included a line-up of First Nations emerging talent over kai kai (fancy nibbles) and panel yarns with the writers, actors and ILBIJERRI’s Artistic Director Rachael Maza (winner of the 2019 Australia Council Award for Theatre).

Presented by Melbourne International Arts Festival in association with ILBIJERRI Theatre Company and Melbourne Theatre Company.

BlackWrights was supported by the Australian Government through the Indigenous Languages and Arts Program and City of Melbourne. Sponsored by
