“I was always like, like a magnet with my Dad, like everywhere he went I was right next to him… He never got rid of me…”

She Said Theatre present HART, a one-man verbatim theatre piece about the lived experiences of Stolen Generations survivors and the ongoing effects experienced by Indigenous Australians.

Using testimonials from the Stolen Generations, Melbourne Fringe and Adelaide Fringe award- winner and Noongar man Ian Michael, invites you to listen to the silenced stories of this country.

Throughout Australia’s history, an unknown number of Indigenous children have been forcibly removed from their families. Parents driven mad, grandparents heartbroken, siblings torn apart, language lost, and culture stripped away.

 Warnings: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences are warned that this production contains images of deceased persons.

“We gained a deeper understanding of Aboriginal culture and the struggle of not being enough of one culture to be classified as either white or black”
