Blak Box

Exhibition and Shows

9 Jan 2019 to 2 Feb 2019

In Urban Theatre Projects’ Blak Box, elders and future leaders from Blacktown’s Aboriginal community invite audiences into a surround-sound listening pavilion, to hear stories and gain a deeper and broader understanding of contemporary Aboriginality.

In a 21st century campfire experience inspired by the concept of deep listening, a soundscape of music and storytellers ranges over thousands of years: a cross-generational dialogue bridging the past and the future.

After a successful opening season at Barangaroo, Blak Box moves to Blacktown – the largest Aboriginal community in Australia – for Sydney Festival. Blak Box is designed by award-winning architect Kevin O’Brien and the deep listening experience Four Winds is curated by Daniel Browning, with lighting by Karen Norris.

Auslan interpreted performance 19 January at 6pm.
