'He was a beauty, that ten-foot carpet snake we had as a pet. My father belonged to the Nunukul tribe of Stradbroke Island, and the carpet snake was his totem. This is a tale of a place not far from home that takes audiences to the oldest living culture on earth.
This performance is an adaptation of celebrated poet, author and artist Oodgeroo of the tribe Noonuccal's book, Stradbroke Dreamtime. In this newly created work from QPAC and Queensland Theatre Company, Oodgeroo's stories come to life on stage helping young audiences to share in her tales of growing up on Stradbroke Island.
Join in a dance telling a Dreamtime story and listen to songs that tell of the water, the land and the people of the island.' Source: www.outoftheboxfestival.com.au/ (Sighted 18/05/2012).
