Tjaabi–Flood Country at Moonah Arts

We have another incredible music and theatre event that we are touring nationally. It will be in Moonah this Saturday (4th) before returning to the NW Coast.


Ten years in the making in the Pilbara, Tjaabi–Flood Country captures the urgencies of the 21st Century as the globe warms and the climate changes. Patrick captures the many cultural and ecological pressures facing Aboriginal people in places like the Pilbara in the face of ever-increasing pressures for new minerals, rare earth, and more ore. He does so through breathtaking music, profoundly personal narrative, and humour that cuts to the bone.

Created in collaboration with award-winning Tasmanian writer and director Scott Rankin (Namatjira, Ngapartji Ngapartji, Hipbone Sticking Out), and produced by Big hART’s renowned collaborative team, Tjaabi–Flood Country delivers much of the signature power of Big hART’s large scale works. Raw, gripping, intensely moving, yet funny and compassionate, Tjaabi–Flood Country creates a contemporary and sophisticated portrait of Pilbara life in this complex moment in time out of Patrick’s remarkable lived experience.
