Originally choreographed as a part of the Dance Clan 3 season in 2013, Macq was remounted and redeveloped for OUR land people stories in 2016.

The true history of Sydney is explored in Macq by Jasmin Sheppard, examining the two sides to Governor Macquarie.

Jasmin Sheppard meets Governor Macquarie of Sydney through his exposing diary entries in the early 1800’s. In a telling story of place, instigations and ramifications, we re-discover the impact of the 1816 ‘March of Macquarie’ on Aboriginal past and present.

So much of our Sydney is named for him, but what legacy has the darker side of his governance left for us?
