Telling Stories: Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander Performance

Maryrose Casey

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Maryrose Casey's Telling Stories expands the territory of her ground-breaking book Creating Frames (2004), which traced the history of Indigenous Australian theatre from the 1960s to 1990 for the first time. In Telling Stories, Casey shifts her focus from script-based drama to traditional and historical Indigenous performance practices, where song, dance, storytelling and visual arts combine in dynamic interchange between spiritual ceremony and secular entertainment.
