Bran Nue Dae

This event has passed!

Presented by: West Australian Opera

By: Jimmy Chi and Kuckles
An Opera Conference Production in Association with Perth Festival

Set out on the road trip of a lifetime with a spunky teenager running away from school, two hippies, a wily Uncle and a German priest. By the time you shake the red dust from your feet, you’ll know what it means to come home.

Jimmy Chi’s coming-of-age musical Bran Nue Dae is an exuberant ride through 1960s Western Australia. Young Willie hitchhikes his way from mission school back to Broome, determined to win the heart of the girl he left behind.

A feel-good mash-up of rock-and-roll, gospel, country and blues music made the first-ever Aboriginal musical a sparkling success in 1990. The stage is a recreation of the historic Sun Pictures open-air cinema in Broome, and the costumes are delightfully nostalgic. Chi’s semi-autobiographical musical is packed with humour and hope.

It’s a story for all Australians, the late musician said “It is my story but it is also yours and everybody else you know who seeks love and happiness in a world clouded by injustice.”
