Summary Sisters of Gelam is a musical theatre performance by pioneering Melbourne-based Indigenous Theatre Company, Ilbijerri. Combining cabaret, puppetry, dance and spoken word, Sisters of Gelam is a deeply personal, autobiographical and poetic journey into the heart of a prominent Australian clan widely known in Indigenous arts circles - the Maza family. Featuring renowned actor and artistic director of Ibijerri, Rachel Maza Long (My Year without Sex, Radiance, Seachange) and her sister Lisa Maza, Sisters of Gelam is a deeply personal exploration into the ties that bind two sisters and the social and political influences that have forged their mixed cultural identities. Combining interviews, family history, archival material, song writing collaborations, not to mention the show's rehearsal process through to the opening night performance - this Artists at Work program explores how Indigenous theatre emerged from the highly political activism of the Australian Black Power movement in the late 1960s to the much more varied and dynamic personal life story accounts that it celebrates today.
Notes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that the following program contains images and voices of people who have died.
