Street theatre

Street theatre is organised by the Aboriginal community in Redfern as a form of political action. It supports many rallies and protests in the 1970s. Gary Foley supports the establishment of the Aboriginal Legal Service, and raises awareness about the Tent Embassy in Canberra. Street theatre supports land rights demonstrations organised by the Black Moratorium Committee. “Sketches and street theatre ... in hotels, in lounges of pubs... We performed as black theatre groups, as street groups, in the marches. Black theatre would get involved with all the political demonstrations.” [Gerry Bostock] Theatre_(Sydney) (V 40, ‘Chicka Madden’s Redfern: The Aboriginal Legal Service’)
