Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Ablaze at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

ABLAZE tells of Bill Onus, a Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri man from Victoria, a truly heroic cultural and political figure who revived his people's culture in the 1940s and ignited a civil rights movement that would, against enormous odds, change the course of history. Told by his grandson Tiriki through rare archival footage, state-of-the-art animation, vividly created digital motion graphics and eye-witness accounts, ABLAZE is the compelling tale – part detective story, part contemporary opera – of how Bill and supporters brilliantly orchestrated their campaign for equality through performance, entertainment, film and sheer audacity outsmarted mighty forces seeking to destroy Indigenous cultures, languages, and communities
