URBAN THEATRE PROJECTS: BLAK BOX - A 'TOURABLE' SPACE FOR FIRST NATIONS STORIES
Blak Box is stripped back storytelling - up-close and personal in a surround sound environment. Blak Box embraces the First Peoples concept of ‘deep listening’. In NSW, the word for deep listening is Ngara. In the Yorta Yorta language of the Murray River in Victoria it is Gulpa Ngawal. An Indigenous understanding of deep listening is based on stories, silences and the spaces that lie between.
Blak Box will play ‘home’ to commissioned works and stories by First Peoples artists as part of UTP’s B-Side program.
