Cremorne Theatre, QPAC

Actor and playwright Sandy Greenwood is bringing her hit one-woman show, Matriarch, to QPAC’s Cremorne Theatre from November 27 to November 30, as part of Clancestry – A Celebration of Country which returns to QPAC in 2019.

A big hit at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival, Sandy Greenwood’s award-winning production illuminates the strength and resilience of four generations of Gumbaynggirr women, by focusing on the matriarchs of her own family: herself, her mother, her grandmother and her great-grandmother.

Using a perfect combination of drama, dance and music, this intimate yet powerful one-woman performance explores cultural identity, the effects of intergenerational trauma, and what it means to be a fair-skin Blak woman in modern Australia.

Matriarch was a testament to the extraordinary power of storytelling and song.” – Arts Review
