Powerful, dynamic theatre about identity, belonging and the courage to be yourself.
How does a teenager accept or acknowledge their Aboriginal identity when it has been hidden for so long? Jordan has a white Mum and an Aboriginal Dad. Jordan wants to make a mark on the world, but which world? Is it possible to navigate a path between two cultures and still remain true to yourself? Or is there another way altogether – that’d be real deadly, eh?!
Deadly Eh?! was developed with students from Brisbane’s Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) for Artslink Queensland as a touring production. It was first performed on 15 July 2013 at Alexandra Hills Secondary College, Alexandra Hills, Queensland, Australia.
