ILBIJERRI is Australia’s leading and longest running Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Theatre Company.
We create challenging and inspiring theatre creatively controlled by Indigenous artists. Our stories are provocative and affecting and gives voice to our unique and diverse cultures.
ILBIJERRI tours its work to national, regional and remote locations across Australia, and the world. We have commissioned 30 new Indigenous works and performed for more than 150,000 people.
We deliver a broad program of artist development for new and emerging Indigenous writers, actors, directors and creatives.
Born from community, ILBIJERRI remain a spearhead for the Australian Indigenous community in telling our stories of what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today. Our work possesses the power to reach out and remind audiences of every person’s need for family, history and heritage.
Our collaborative relationships with communities and artists are at the heart of our creative process and all our work empowers and enlightens our audiences.
