Description The long awaited return of this brilliant improvised comedy about WA’s Pinjarra Massacre. Created by Nyoongar and Wadjella (whitefella) actors, Bindjareb Pinjarra demonstrates extra-ordinary risk taking through its fusion of history, outrageous comedy and physical theatre. Every performance is different. Bindjareb Pinjarra has been performed successfully across Australia to over 25,000 people. It has been highly acclaimed by indigenous and non-indigenous audiences alike for its honesty and humour, and for the very entertaining way it demonstrates true reconciliation at work.
