Namatjira & Ngapartji Ngapartji go right to the heart of the intersection between Indigenous and non-Indigenous experience

These stories of family, friendship, land, myth, life and death are contextualised within the social and political framework of their times

They resonate universally, yet at the same time capture unique moments in Australian history and experience

Namatjira - The moving story of Albert Namatjira(19021959)

Namatjira was Australia's most famous Indigenous, watercolour artist and the first to achieve commercial success, but his story is hardly known

Albert Namatjira's story resonates today as strongly as it did 50 years ago, providing a lens through which we can see the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians both in the past and the present

Ngapartji Ngapartji - Taking its name from the Pitjantjatjara concept of exchange and reciprocity -co-created with Trevor Jamieson - this play is a deeply affecting experience of Indigenous history

Exploring themes of dispossession and displacement from country, home and family, the play tells the story of a Pitjantjatjara family forcibly moved off their lands to make way for the testing of British Atomic bombs at Maralinga
