The Wimmera Speaks

(Melbourne)

‘The Wimmera Speaks’ explores D’Arcy Molan’s matrilineal connection to the Wimmera region through spoken word, live music, pre-recorded music and projected landscape photos. The work presents material themed around people and place, the ethics of non-Indigenous belonging, and the multiple histories of spaces. It is an adaptation of his creative writing Honours project. While Melbourne born and raised, D’Arcy grew up performing the saxophone with his jazz pianist grandmother Audrey Huntly from the Apsley/Edenhope area. ‘The Wimmera Speaks’ premiered in Melbourne July 14, 2017. Now the show is landing at the source.
