Sections in this Resource
Mathinna is based on the true story of a young Tasmanian Aboriginal girl, Mathinna, who lived in the early 1800s.
Mathinna shows how movement, imagery, design, music and sound all contribute to present a narrative about social and cultural perceptions.
The creating of Bangarra’s production of Mathinna began with extensive research of historical record, literary and visual interpretations. Most importantly, there was close consultations with several Aboriginal Tasmanian community elders.
