AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Thirty Aboriginal musicians, performers and creative artists from across the country come together for one of the most thrilling collaborations ever commissioned by Sydney Festival. Director Wesley Enoch and his team have created a dynamic fusion of dance, performance, film, art and literature with an array of musical styles. 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 with 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 Indigenous performance, telling the stories of Sydney's Aboriginal continuity in a celebration of its heroes. With a cast of performers ranging from the emerging to the iconic, the project aspires to create a legacy for Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike.' (Source: Sydney Festival 2012 website)
