******************

Malthouse Theatre is proud to present the Reconciliation Comedy Gala, a star-studded afternoon of comedy for a great cause, presented on 26 January on the day of one of Australia’s most controversial public holidays.

The gala will raise funds for the City of Yarra’s Stolen Generations Marker project. This important monument is intended to honour the struggles of the Stolen Generations as well as acknowledge the resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, communities, clans and groups who seek to heal from the past. The artist commissioned to create the Marker will be announced at this event.

Joining MCs Uncle Jack Charles and Judith Lucy are an all-star line up of Australian music and comedy, including Wil Anderson, Tom Ballard, Anne Edmonds, Hannah Gadsby, Shiralee Hood, Kevin Kropinyeri, Bunna Lawrie, Perfect Tripod (Eddie Perfect and Tripod), Dane Simpson, Nelly Thomas, and the Koori Youth Will Shake Spears dance group.

Our neighbours, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, will be open from 11am for ticket holders to view the exhibition Sovereignty before the Reconciliation Comedy Gala. Sovereignty focuses upon contemporary art of First Nations peoples of South East Australia, alongside keynote historical works, to explore culturally and linguistically diverse narratives of self-determination, identity, sovereignty and resistance.
