AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Q150 and Long Before" is a music theatre journey of the last 150 years and long before, snapshots of the Indigenous peoples' contribution to the 'building up' of this the Sunshine state. There will be stories influenced by the South Sea Islanders and the Torres Strait and all told from this generation's perspective. Stories of the Dreaming, Gatherings and Totems and the coming of the first three white men carried here on a storm.'


  • In the last 150 years there have been triumphs & heartbreak, renegades and resistance, laws made for us, against us, broken by us as we, the Indigenous people, find our way in this "change" blown here by a southerly wind. Holding strong, the Murri determination to survive runs deep coming from the blood, sweat and tears of those who came before us in the "making" of this State.'
