'A centrepiece of the festival, 'Bungalow Song', is an extraordinary, new production set within the landscape and compound of the Old Telegraph Station, just outside Alice Springs.
''Bungalow Song' uncovers the hidden history of the Bungalow, and pays homage to the children who grew up there through story, song and spectacular audio visual.
'The show will bring together live performance, light, audio, song, and powerful narratives. Through the use of multiple projection, the walls of the buildings will magically appear to melt away and become a canvas to dramatize the extraordinary photographic archive of images taken there.
'An ensemble of young Indigenous performers cast from Alice Springs will play the Bungalow children.
'Created in association with the Stolen Generation Office, this powerful and moving production is finally a celebration of resilience, love and survival and conceived as a major healing event for the site.
It is a one off and un-missable experience!' (Publisher's blurb)
Performed at the Mbantua Festival, Alice Springs 9-11 October 2013.
