181 REGENT ST ADDRESSING BLACK THEATRE SYMPOSIUM

CURATED BY RHODA ROBERTS

Forty years ago the National Black Theatre emerged from Regent Street, Redfern and spawned landmark playwrights such as Kevin Gilbert, Robert Merritt and Jack Davis and the careers of remarkable actors such as Bob Maza, Lillian Crombie and Justine Saunders, cultural activist Gary Foley and director Brian Syron. Exploring this unique movement and its irrevocable impact on Australia’s arts and society, curator Rhoda Roberts brings together National Black Theatre alumni, leaders and artists for a series of talks, playreadings and films.
