Cremorne Theatre, QPAC

COOKED is a thought-provoking new work where First Nations young people are the ones asking the settlers of so-called Australia the questions, coming to QPAC from May 24-28, 2022.

In 1770, a tall ship with white sails, captained by James Cook, unfurled a Union Jack on what is today called Possession Island.

18 years later, Captain Arthur Phillip raised the same Union Jack at Sydney Cove, marking the beginning of so-called Australia.

250 years later, we have some questions.

This year, let’s not settle for easy answers (because we know there aren’t any). Let’s put a match to the white-wash and engage in some real talk!

We’ve thought about it and we have some questions. 

About this place.
About the past.
About right now.
About the future.
About where we want to be in 250 years’ time.

COOKED is made by Digi Youth Arts, a family of deadly young artists and creators continuing the stories of one of the oldest surviving cultures in the world, in solidarity with The Good Room - a Queensland-based performance collective who use the anonymous experiences of ordinary people to create extraordinary theatre works.
