Trevor Jamison │ CORANDERRK
Trevor Jamesion, is one of Australia's most recognisable faces of theatre, film and TV. He played Uncle Max in the ABC TV series Cleverman - if you've never watched Ryan Griffin's Cleverman Series 1 and 2 - warning, its gut wrenching content ingeniously addresses Aboriginal sprituality, culture and lore! Trevor Jamesion is the face of CORANDERRK.
At a Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry in 1881, the men and women of the Coranderrk Aboriginal Reserve went head-to-head with the Aboriginal Protection Board. Their goal was both simple and revolutionary: to continue the brilliant experiment in self-determination, pioneered for themselves on the scrap of country left to them. CORANDERRK recreates that inquiry. Presented by ILBIJERRl Theatre Company and Belvoir Theatre Company, CORANDERRK will appear at the Cube Wodonga, 7:30pm Thursday 4 May 2017. Contact the Cube Wodonga for all tickets.
Trevor is one of Australia's most recognisable faces of theatre, film and TV. He played Uncle Max in the ABC TV series Cleverman and starred in both the ABC TV mini-series and Sydney Theatre Company national tour of The Secret River. He also recently starred in the national tour of Queensland Theatre Company's Black Diggers. Trevor collaborated with Big hART to create Ngapartji Ngapartji for which he won 'Best Leading Man' at the Sydney Theatre Awards and 'Most Outstanding Achievement in Film, TV or Theatre' at the Deadly Awards.
Trevor was nominated for 'Best Leading Man' at the Sydney Theatre Awards for his performance of Albert Namatjira in the Belvoir/Big hART co-production Namatjira.

"Murray Arts is all for opening up doors and creating opportunities for the Aboriginal community. One of these opportunities is the upcoming performance of CORANDERRK.We have Traditonal Owners, Gunditjamarra people and other Victorian Traditional Owners living in Wodonga, whose songlines and bloodlines are connected to the Corranderk Lands with links to other Nations. This performance will bring up emotions and stories from the past and present. I look forward to seeing this special production in May. We're so lucky to have ILBIJERRl Theatre Company and Belvoir Theatre Company coming to our region." Maggih Coates, Aboriginal Arts Officer
