MBANTUA

THE BUNGALOW SONG

2013

Composed & musically directed by David Bridie, commissioned by Mbantua and Opera Australia.
The show told the story of the Indigenous children who were forcibly removed from their families and culture and taken to live at the old telegraph station in Alice Springs. The cast comprised thirty local children related to the survivors, who told the harrowing story in a powerful fusion of testimony, song and visual theatre.
