MY STORY, YOUR STORY
EVERYONE HAS A STORY WORTH TELLING
Jesse’s family has always loved singing, dancing and telling stories. When a talent scout visits their remote Indigenous community and picks Jesse out from the rest, it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. But being away from home is not easy, and city life is not quite what Jesse expected. It is only when Jesse meets Sam, they both learn that everyone’s story is important.
Covering themes of friendship, family, acceptance, storytelling and courage, My Story, Your Story will take students on a journey from remote Indigenous communities to the big city.
Incorporating a variety of language conventions, including spoken word, poetry, song and Aboriginal language, as well as traditional dance and rhythm making, this piece of Indigenous theatre (performed in-the-round) highlights the importance of cultural identity and individuality.
