BILARNI

28th October 07:30 pm - 09:00 pm

From renowned storyteller/musician and original Bushwacker Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky, Bilarni is storytelling theatre where everything and nothing is black and white as Jan tracks the man who was called the ‘expert’ on Aborigines, the great yarn-spinner, WE (Bill) Harney (1895-1962). Scripted from Harney’s many books, radio broadcasts and papers and linked with Jan’s weird and wonderful adventures ‘up north’, BILARNI is the story of an ‘uneducated’ bushman who returned from World War One to live a life amongst Aboriginal people in the NT: never a life a comfort, at times shocking, full of joy and suffering, and mirthful, erudite, sharp and ironic in the telling. “Two legends – Bill Harney and Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky – a two for one deal.” (John Romeril, playwright)

Call of the forrest : the forgotten wisdom of trees

19th November 03:30 pm - 06:00 pm

The documentary follows visionary scientist and acclaimed author Diana Beresford-Kroeger as she investigates our profound biological and spiritual connection to forests. Her global journey explores the science, folklore, and restoration challenges of this essential eco-system.

Trees provide food, create medicine, and most importantly, provide life-giving oxygen. Without trees and their ability to capture carbon dioxide, our living breathable atmosphere would cease to exist on our planet.

Call of the Forest sounds the alarm by calling for immediate action on a global scale, but at its heart, it is a story of triumph, proposing a simple strategy for each of us to combat climate change by planting trees in our own yards and neighbourhoods
