Black Border Theatre provides young Aboriginal artists from our region with the opportunity to develop as performers and theatre-makers, and to connect with the broader Indigenous theatre community.
Chosen ensemble members commit to a year of intensive skills development and work towards the creation and performance of an original work. The group is given access to nationally recognised artists: to date they have participated in workshops or mentoring sessions with leading Aboriginal artists from around the country including Wesley Enoch, Jason De Santis, Kamarra Bell-Wykes, Billy Mac and Uncle Jack Charles.
Black Border Theatre has been developed and supported by the following organisations and foundations: Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Community Working Party, Hume Medicare Local, Mungabareena Aboriginal Corporation, Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service, Pierce Armstrong Foundation, Aboriginal Benefits Foundation, FaHCSIA through the Indigenous Coordination Centres and Arts NSW.
The 2016 Black Border Theatre Ensemble is: Tahlia Biggs, Isaiah Carney, Mark Delphin, Kyson Edwards, Tiffany Ward and Ezekiel Wighton.
