We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Elders, Ancestors and leaders of the Kulin Nations on whose unceded lands ILBIJERRI Theatre Company is based.
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.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples should be advised that this website may contain images of deceased persons.
Thirty years ago ILBIJERRI was born out of a passion to create a platform for Black voices, a platform for dynamic and empowering theatre creatively controlled by Indigenous artists.
This same fire and passion continues to burn at the heart of the company today.
ILBIJERRI is Australia’s leading and longest running Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Theatre Company, creating bold, provocative and inspiring theatre that gives voice to our unique and diverse cultures. We are committed to the development of the next generation of landmark First Nation artists and to telling stories of national significance, developed on Country, and toured to national, regional and remote locations across Australia, and the world.
ILBIJERRI is a Woiwurrung word meaning ‘Coming Together for Ceremony’. We thrive through collaboration, by creating meaningful, long-term relationships with individuals and organisations who share our values and vision.
We invite you to join us on this journey.
