About Broken Glass
Blacktown Arts, Moogahlin Performing Arts and Blacktown City Council present the world premiere of Broken Glass – a powerful installation and performance work – as part of Sydney Festival 2018.

Told from a women’s perspective, Broken Glass illuminates the rituals of death and mourning in New South Wales and Victorian First Peoples’ communities through memory, surrogation, lore, customs, the secular, the sacred, and myth.

Key artists Lily Shearer, Liza-Mare Syron, Aroha Groves, Andrea James and Katie Leslie occupy St Bartholomew’s Church and Cemetery in Prospect – Darug country – to create an intimate, enlightening and moving experience. Music composed by Brenda Gifford, Sound Design by Nancia Guivarra, Costume Design by Robyn Caughlan, and Lighting Design by Karen Norris.

St Bartholomew’s Church and Cemetery is located on Darug country. The church, which opened in 1841, was the first church built in the Prospect area. Maria Lock, an important figure in Darug history, and explorer William Lawson are buried at St Bartholomew’s Cemetery.

Performance bookings available through Sydney Festival.
