RISING: Heart is a Wasteland

Concert or Performance

2 Jun 2021 to 5 Jun 2021 Daily Event

Storytelling and live music combine in a cross-country, whisky-fueled love story.

Raye, a struggling country music star in the making, plays pub to pub along Australia’s vast desert highways, flogging demo CDs in the hope of returning home to her son Elvis. But when she meets Dan, another broken wanderer, a love affair unfurls over their four-day drive home to Alice Springs.

Heart Is a Wasteland—originally conceived and performed in a sell-out season by Malthouse Theatre and Brown Cabs—combines First Peoples storytelling with live music, in a whisky-fueled battle of egos. It cuts to the country’s heart, recognising everyone’s individual right to love.

ILBIJERRI Theatre Company’s re-staging of Heart Is a Wasteland is a brand new production—in both vision and scale—featuring freshly conceived sets, musical arrangements by Gary Watling and adventurous audiovisual design; all reimagined to match the energy of its new young leads.
