Summary A two part series about how the Black Swan Theatre Company and Bunuba Films bring the epic theatre production Jandamarra to the stage for the first time as part of the 2008 Perth International Arts Festival. Part 1 follows Jandamarra's production period from the first read-through of the play's script and the set-design briefing, to the first full-rehearsal run. On location in the Kimberley, the writer Steve Hawke takes us to the Lilimooloora Station ruins where Jandamarra, then a police tracker, changed sides in defence of his captive kinsmen and killed Constable Richardson. Hawke also guides us through Windjana Gorge where Jandamarra led an ambush against a large police force. The second part follows the production's move from the rehearsal room onto a massive set with seven-metre high facades representing the Napier Range, and the soundscape rehearsals with musical director Paul Kelly. Part 2 concludes in the theatre with preparations for opening night and features key scenes and highlights from the production. -- From ABC website.
