Milk: By Dylan Van Den Berg

June 4 @ 7:30 pm - June 13 @ 9:00 pm GMT

On the precipice of something life changing, a young Palawa man plunges into an exploration of self and Country.

Carried with the winds of a metaphysical Flinders Island, the land of his mob and the place where it all happened, he is drawn back to the dawn of colonization. To a woman who bore the brunt of the oppressors’ violence and then forward to her granddaughter, who buried the truth as a means of survival. Stirring up stories together, with parts both achingly sad and unexpectedly funny, what unfolds reveals by slow degrees painful but important truths.

Canberra-based writer Dylan Van Den Berg, winner of the 2021 Nick Enright Prize for Playwriting at the NSW Premiers Literary Awards, brings to the stage the uneasy personal process of reconciliation.

What are the complexities of aligning yourself with Indigenous legacies of resilience when you are also related to their oppressors?
