A didgeridoo plays, light flickers across a dark ceiling, a simple Afghan mat is laid out and Aunty Rhonda Dixon Grovenor, a Darug-Yuin elder, walks on stage...
Welcome to the Australian Truth and Reconciliation Tribunal we’ve never had. Artists, lawyers, leaders and activists put Australia’s colonial past and murky refugee policies on trial in this powerful piece of political theatre.
Each performance is different, with guests airing their experiences and the issues directly affecting their communities. Tribunal is a space where the truth can be told, connections can be made, and intimacies shared.
Direct from a sold-out season at Sydney Festival, this participatory performance was critically praised as "possibly the most relevant, urgent and moving of all the 2018 Sydney Festival offerings" (Alt Media).
Directed and co-conceived by Karen Therese, artistic director of PYT I Fairfield, and featuring Afghan performer Mahdi Mohammadi and Aboriginal activist and Darug-Yuin Elder Aunty Rhonda Dixon Grovenor.
Presented by Sydney Opera House and PYT | Fairfield
