Please complete the Expression Of Interest form by 5pm Friday 19th May

Presented by ILBIJERRI Theatre Company and Victorian Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) in partnership with Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), Victorian Aboriginal Health Service (VAHS), Hepatitis Victoria and the Centre for Excellence in Rural Sexual Health (CERSH).

A Blak comedy about life, love, and being more than “chopped liver”. CHOPPED LIVER spans 20 years and follows the stories of Lynne and Jim, two Koories from country Victoria and the way their lives are impacted by Hepatitis C. The two-person play shows that Hepatitis C doesn’t have to be a negative and life damaging experience and can be effectively treated,

BACKGROUND

In 2005, ILBIJERRI Theatre Company collaborated with the Victorian Department of Human Services, the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation, and Hepatitis C Victoria to develop a play that would communicate Hepatitis C prevention and education messages to the Victorian Aboriginal community. The partnership grew in 2007, with support from Corrections Victoria and the Department of Justice, to extend the project to Victorian prisons.

Over four years 2006 – 2009, CHOPPED LIVER toured nationally and was seen by over eight thousand people in communities, schools & prisons. It remains a highlight to anyone that saw it, a well-loved show that tackles a serious disease with a serious dose of humour.

The show has been awarded an Indigenous Community Justice Award (for outstanding contribution towards improved social justice for the Koori Community in the Enforcement Initiative), and has also received the prestigious “Secretary’s Award” at the 2008 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards, for “keeping people well in the community”.

TOUR

CHOPPED LIVER will return revitalised in 2017 with content updated to communicate that a new cure is available in accordance with the Victorian Hepatitis C Strategy 2016-2020. The show continues to be relevant to Koorie audiences, especially at this exciting time of Direct Acting Antiviral availability to cure Hepatitis C in our community, with few side effects and 95% success rates.
