I Am Eora @ Sydney Festival
David has been recently performing in I Am Eora as part of the 2012 Sydney Festival.
From the Sydney Festival Website;
Fifty Aboriginal musicians, performers, creative artists and technicians from across the country come together for one of the most thrilling collaborations ever commissioned by Sydney Festival.
Writer/director Wesley Enoch, co-writer Anita Heiss and their team create a dynamic fusion of storytelling, dance, performance and film featuring a cast of iconic and emerging performers including Jack Charles, Wilma Reading, Frank Yamma, Stiff Gins, Radical Son and a rockin’ live band.
At the centre of the work are three heroes of Aboriginal Sydney whose enduring spirits still inspire: the protest and resistance of the warrior Pemulwuy; the female embodiment of resilience, Barangaroo; and her controversial husband Bennelong, the gifted interpreter who sought reconciliation.
I Am Eora (I am of this place) breaks new ground in contemporary Australian performance, telling the stories of Sydney’s Aboriginal continuity in a celebration of its heroes.
Provocative, inspiring and spectacular – I Am Eora is a powerful journey through Sydney’s past, present and future.
