Event description

Description

A night of art, comedy, political satire, awkward teenage confessions and Redfern gossip from Cope ST Collective.

What free stuff have Aboriginal people received from the government? Should we move on from 1788? Should there be a special Tinder add on to tell you if you’re related to the blackfella you’re about to send a naked photo to? These are the hard-hitting questions Cope ST Collective will attempt in their final showing at Glebe Library of This is your black life.

Using a mix of videos and live performance, This is your black life, will reveal the secret lives of each member of Indigenous arts collective Cope ST, in an absurd, insightful and comedic style that will be your entertaining monthly dose of Redfern gossip. No topic is off limits and no embarrassing anecdotal stone will be left unturned.

Produced by City of Sydney and presented in collaboration with Cope ST.

About Cope ST:

Bjorn Stewart, Katie Beckett, Colin Kinchela and Kodie Bedford make up Cope ST, an Indigenous arts collective that banded together to make quirky art, theatre and multi-media projects that represented their nerd and weird interests. They rose to prominence in 2016 when their comedy video “How to do Blackface” went viral. The group wrote and performed sci-fi comedy One of the Good Ones, to much acclaim at Sydney’s Red Rattler for a season and will appear on the upcoming comedy sketch show “The Slot” on Fox 8 later in the year.
