A brilliant improvised comedy about WA's Pinjarra Massacre.
Created and performed by Nyoongar and Wadjella (whitefella) actors, Bindjareb Pinjarra demonstrates extraordinary risk taking through its fusion of history, outrageous comedy and physical theatre.
The catalyst for this theatrical history lesson is the mass killing of the Nyoongar people at Pinjarra on October 28, 1834 - an event recorded as the Battle of Pinjarra but mourned by local Nyoongar as a massacre. An account of this is played out in front of a dramatic backdrop painted by Nyoongar artist Tjyllyungoo (Lance Chadd).
Heartfelt and hearty all at once, Bindjareb Pinjarra has many wonderful moments ranging from a Nyoongar hunting party's poignant first encounter with a settler's fenced land to a present-day motorcycle cop's antics with a boomerang standing in as his handlebars.Visit Website
