A PART OF “AROUSAL – A REAWAKENING”
this event is valid for the Platinum, Gold or Silver offers
In 1914, a bullet from an assassin’s gun in Sarajevo sparked a war that ignited the globe. Patriotic young men all over the world lined up to join the fight – including hundreds of Indigenous Australians.
Shunned and downtrodden in their own country, banned by their own government from serving in the military, Aboriginal men had to hide their heritage to enlist. Undaunted, they took up arms to defend the free world in its time of greatest need. For them, facing the horrors of Gallipoli was an escape from the shackles of racism at home. When the survivors came back from the war, there was no heroes’ welcome – just a shrug, and a return to drudgery and oppression.
Black Diggers is the story of these men – a story of honour and sacrifice that has been covered up and almost forgotten – brought to you via a live Simulcast in HD direct from the Playhouse at QPAC in Brisbane.
Directed by Wesley Enoch and written by Tom Wright, Black Diggers is the culmination of painstaking research into the lives and deaths of the thousand or so Indigenous soldiers who fought for the British Commonwealth in World War I.
This performance is preceded by a talk by the director at 6pm and the performance is scheduled to start at the early time of 6.30pm.
