Based on a story by Dimple Bani, Jimi Bani & co-created with Jason Klarwein Director Jason Klarwein
Mabuiag Island: a remote speck in Mabuiag Island: a remote speck in the sparkling blue of the Torres Strait. Thousands of years of history and culture, with just a few hundred people keeping its flame alive. Now its favourite son is joking in three languages with his grandmother and torturing his son with spontaneous public breakdancing.
Jimi Bani (Title and Deed, the ABC’s Mabo) whisks you away to his island for an evening of music, dance, standup and storytelling. Four generations of one family take the stage, as Jimi’s grandmother, mother, son and brothers help him spin yarns of totems, traditions and childhood memories.
