Jessie Lloyd’s Mission Songs Project
Jessie Lloyd’s profoundly moving and important Mission Songs Project is an initiative to revive contemporary Australian Indigenous songs from 1900 to 1999.
Presented by HotHouse Theatre in association with Performing Lines, Mission Songs Project will be showing at HotHouse Theatre from 12 – 15 May 2021.
The show reveals what daily life was like for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on Christian missions and state-run settlements. Jessie will also be supported onstage by local performers, Racheal Oak Butler, Bobby Whybrow, Aaron Perkins-Kemp-Berger, Aunty Valda Murray and a local choir performing two original songs reflecting local identity and stories.
