Description A darkly hilarious meditation on histories of violence, the power of stories and colonialism, 'Doku Rai' was created by an improbable gathering of artists stranded to live and work on a remote island off Timor-Leste. The critically acclaimed Black Lung Theatre and Whaling Firm, rife with malaria, return to Adelaide with East Timorese rock gods Galaxy and unhinged social saboteurs Liurai Fo'er.
