Product Description

The Aboriginal people of Coranderrk reserve in central Victoria waged a sustained campaign for justice, land rights and self-determination in colonial Australia. Despite having created an award-winning farm they were targeted for removal. Their lobbying of government, with their white supporters, triggered a Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881.

Coranderrk: We will show the country derives from a verbatim-theatre performance where professional actors brought to life the Inquiry’s witnesses.

In Coranderrk their powerful petitioning, including the renowned William Barak, can be read alongside that of their non-Aboriginal allies, as well as the Aboriginal Protection Board and greedy local pastoralists who wanted them removed.

Coranderrk includes a historical introduction, biographies of the witnesses, and a range of historical images and stills from a theatrical production.
