My Lovers’ Bones
” An exquisitely creepy adaption of the bunyip legend”
Presented by Footscray Community Arts Centre in association with Melbourne Festival and Brown Cab Productions.
An Aboriginal man stumbles down a Melbourne laneway, pursued by an ancient, malevolent force. As he runs, he can feel the creature’s eyes burning through him – but is he fleeing from the fiend itself, or from the monster he fears he might become?
A modern day re-imagining of the bunyip legend, My Lovers’ Bones is a spine-chilling new theatrical work from acclaimed Indigenous storytellers Brown Cab Productions. A fusion of theatre, poetry, physical movement, digital projection and visceral soundscape, My Lovers’ Bones offers a hauntingly beautiful take on a myth both fearsome and misunderstood – the hunter of those who would forget the laws of the land.
