SONG the story of a Girl, a Bird and a Teapot

August 5, 2015 - August 9, 2015

| $25

“PRESENTED BY BRISBANE POWERHOUSE, YAKKANA AND ACCOLADE PRODUCTIONS

SONG the story of a girl, a bird and a teapot is a one woman show about family and those moments in life that really test one’s self.

Utilising her life experience as a Narrunga-Kaurna woman of mixed heritage from South Australia, writer/performer Waiata Telfer follows the journey of Song, an Aboriginal girl who challenges the notion of tradition and community to form her own sense of identity and belonging.
 Having disconnected from her past, Song retraces her journey through the memories connected to a treasured family relic as well as the calling of a bird that she cannot see but whose song she can instinctively hear.

Developed by an outstanding creative team, including acclaimed Brisbane director Sue Rider, and featuring Waiata and musician Jay Kleinschmidt, the story is performed with raw honesty and is a mix of grit, blackfella humour, strong visuals and a unique poetic style incorporating Kaurna language.

Inspired by social-political issues Waiata experienced while growing up in the seventies, as well as the strong women surrounding her, SONG the story of a girl, a bird and a teapot is a witty and moving piece of original theatre with autobiographical undertones and an enduring legacy of hope.

Audience members are requested to bring a small stone to the performance.

Warning: this production contains coarse language.”
