We hope that the information, suggested activities and additional references in this resource will assist in enriching students’ experience of the performance, while offering a range of study options related to the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island histories and cultures, as well as Aboriginal Perspectives, Indigenous Studies and Arts state curricula/syllabi.
