Part of FIRESIDE and Bleach* Festival 2021
Two broken wanderers begin a love affair on their fight to the top of Australian country music charts. Conceived and performed in a sell-out season by Malthouse Theatre and Brown Cabs, Heart is a Wasteland combines First Peoples storytelling with live music, in a whisky-fuelled battle of egos.
Ilbijerri Theatre Company’s re-staging of Heart Is a Wasteland is a brand-new production—in both vision and scale—featuring freshly conceived sets, musical arrangements by Gary Watling and adventurous audio-visual design; all reimagined to match the energy of its new young leads.
A love for country music isn’t a prerequisite to enjoy the performance. Chase away your winter blues and share a night of stunning performances as part of FIRESIDE.
Performers: Dion Williams (Waradjuri from Narrandera and Wakaman far North Queensland), Monica Jasmine Karo (Gunai/Gunditjmara), Gary Watling (Wiradjuri).
