Bleach* Festival and Queensland Theatre Company present Stradbroke Dreamtime By Oodgeroo of the tribe Noonuccal
Continuing our theme of stories from the coast, Bleach* Festival brings the sublime children’s production by the state theatre company to the shores of Currumbin for all to enjoy.
‘He was a beauty, that ten-foot carpet snake we had as a pet. My father belonged to the Noonuccal tribe of Stradbroke Island, and the carpet snake was his totem.’
This is a tale of a place not far from home that takes audiences to the oldest living culture on earth.
An adaptation of the book, Stradbroke Dreamtime by Oodgeroo, this performance brings to life island stories of the Noonuccal tribe, and Oodgeroo’s own experiences growing up on Stradbroke Island.
Join in the telling of the Dreamtime stories, through poetry, song and dance, and learn of the water, the land and the people of the island.
Stradbroke Dreamtime originally produced by Queensland Theatre Company and Queensland Performing Arts Centre based on the writings of Oodgeroo Noonuccal.
