10 in 10 Online Readings

An exciting online mini-festival of 10-minute play readings, shining a spotlight on new First Nations scripts, read by actors from the ILBIJERRI Ensemble.

ABOUT 10 IN 10

Applications came flooding in for First Nations writers of all experience levels – to write a ten-minute play in ten days – with the help of a $2000 commission as part of ILBIJERRI Theatre Company’s 10 in 10 project.

The successful applicants had just ten days from 3 to 12 November to flesh out a ten-minute script – all based on a provocation of ‘circles’– with ‘campfire pitstops’ offered by the ILBIJERRI professional creative team along the way.

ILBIJERRI also invited participation from New Native Theatre, based in Minnesota (US), as part of an ongoing cross-cultural partnership. Three of their works will form part of the program of readings.

The fifteen successful scriptwriters are: Jada Alberts, Marlanie Haerewa, Monica Harland, Barb Hostalek, Nicola Ingram, Kalina Lauer, Brodie Murray, Melodie Reynolds, Maurial Spearim, Rudi Louis Taylor-Bragge, Laila Thaker, and Ruby Williams. From the US, Montana CypressMichael Nephew and Lini Wilkins.

Their works will be read by ILBIJERRI Ensemble actors, under the guidance of five ILBIJERRI directors and dramaturgs, with a different program of script readings each night.

Duration: 120min per night


ILBIJERRI Ensemble is also supported by City of Melbourne; and the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust.
