Bran Nue Dae

Date: 2 Dec 2019

Bran Nue Dae, the world’s first Aboriginal stage musical, gets a 30th birthday reboot in a brand new production.

Packed to the sunroof with humour and hope, and fuelled by the soul-reggae-country sounds of cult band Kuckles, the late Jimmy Chi’s musical road-trip through 1960s Western Australia follows Young Willie as he hitchhikes his way home from mission school back to the girl he loves with two hippies, a wily Uncle and a German priest for company.

Staged on a recreation of the historic Sun Pictures open-air cinema in Broome, Bran Nue Day looks back to a different world and forward to a better tomorrow. It’s a story for all Australians, said Chi. “It is my story but it is also yours and everybody else you know who seeks love and happiness in a world clouded by injustice.”
