An Authentic 2012 Re-enactment of the Authentic 1938 Re-enactment of the 1788 British Colonisation of Australia.
On Australia Day in 1938, Australia’s first major Aboriginal protest, the Day of Mourning took place against the backdrop of a jolly national celebration of 150 years of European colonisation. 1938: An Opera invents an alternative history where Aboriginal activist Marge Tucker teams up with Italian Anarchists and Chinese Communists to subvert a re-enactment of Governor Phillip’s landing, incite revolution and expose the brutality behind the White Australia Policy, all while singing and dancing!
From the creators of Melbourne Model: The Musical, this will be an epic, multicultural satire on nationalism and racism.
Presented by Union House Theatre
