Ben­ne­long In Ben­ne­long, Ban­garra artis­tic di­rec­tor Stephen Page writes new his­to­ries that re­claim some of the stolen ter­ri­tory and the peo­ple who lived on it, who owned it. Beau Dean Ri­ley Smith is the tow­er­ing Wan­gal man Wool­larawarre Ben­ne­long. Page and his cre­ative col­lab­o­ra­tors, in­clud­ing dra­maturge Alana Valen­tine, take what can be gleaned from dis­tant records and trans­form ac­cepted fact into the im­me­di­ate and richly al­lu­sive lan­guages of move­ment, mu­sic and vis­ual art. Ja­cob Nash’s elo­quent sets and Jen­nifer Ir­win’s cos­tumes are lit by one of the masters, Nick Sch­lieper, and Matthew Doyle’s songs and voice are pow­er­fully em­bed­ded in Steve Fran­cis’s mu­sic. Can­berra The­atre Cen­tre, Lon­don Cir­cuit, Can­berra. Fi­nal per­for­mance tonight, 7.30pm. Tick­ets: $30-$69. Book­ings: (02) 6275 2700 or on­line.
