ABOUT THE SHOW:
A theatrical documentary about the irrepressible life and times of Palm Island.
Palm Island, 2004.
An Aboriginal man dies in police custody.
Members of the Palm Island community make a direct challenge to police power and the police station is torched.
Ten years later, the people of Palm Island continue to demand real justice, and all the while life continues.
LBIJERRI Theatre Company and Belvoir came together in 2011 over a shared sense of outrage at the injustices surrounding the death of Mulrunji Doomadgee. But, prompted by the Palm Island community, they have looked for a way to turn anger into real understanding and new possibilities. The result is Beautiful One Day – a theatrical documentary about the irrepressible life and times of Palm Island.
Presented by: FAC and ILBIJERRI Theatre and Belvoir
