HART by She Said Theatre

Friday 17 March 12 noon


A verbatim theatre piece, HART examines the difficult and harrowing history of the Stolen Generations from the perspectives of four Noongar men spanning three generations, including performer Ian Michael.


HART won Michael Best Emerging Indigenous Artist, SA Tour Ready and Tiki Tour Ready awards at Melbourne Fringe 2015, as well as Best Emerging Artist at Adelaide Fringe in 2016. The show has toured to Auckland, Wellington, Adelaide, Port Augusta, Perth and Brisbane.


Michael says, “As a young Indigenous person and performer, it’s vital to be able to tell the stories and the truth from my people. Especially stories of survival and resilience.”


Director Penny Harpham shares Michael’s passion for the project, explaining, “Making HART has been a way for us to educate each other, to keep informed, and to create a considered and highly personal shared experience. She Said, is committed to creating a space for all voices – not just the dominant or the popular – to be heard.”


 “A brave and quietly devastating performance...Moving theatre that handles some emotionally harrowing material with dignity and grace.” —Cameron Woodhead, The Age “Beautiful, heartbreaking and liberating storytelling... A story about us and now.” —Anne-Marie Peard, AussieTheatre.com
