Feastival - a feast of multicultural theatre

Feastival - a feast of multicultural theatre poster

Feastival  SUNDAY JUNE 18th 6PM
Is a triple bill – a feast of multicultural theatre produced by 3 Darwin cultural groups.
From Japanese Eyes- Bombing of Darwin depicts the true story of Hajime Toyashima, the first Australian POW during World War II. Hajime was captured by Indigenous man, Matthias Ulungura after his fighter plane emergency crash landed on Melville Island during the bombing of Darwin. He was later cited as one of the leaders of the largest POW breakout in Australia during WWII, signaling the start of the rebellion on his bugle. This piece honors Hajime’s courage and intelligence and describes the influence of the Japanese code of military conduct on his destiny.
Past Journey- Bright Future is the story of two young people who were born in a Ugandan refugee camp. They depict their early life in the camp, the beauty of Africa and the way they discovered and could explore their identity, and Ma’di culture - only after they arrived in Australia.  

The musical theatre piece Yatra weaves the story (with humour and song) of leaving your home country of India for a better future in Darwin.

It celebrates being a migrant Australian and honors the journey to build a new life.

 Chambers Crescent Theatre, Malak   Sunday 18th June, 6pm
