Mr Takahashi (and other falling secrets)
1 Mar, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
This free performance is presented by Corrugated Iron Youth Arts and JUTE Theatre Company as part of the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Darwin.
Darwin, 1942. A town collapses under the threat of invasion. Mothers and daughters, sisters, friends, and entire cultures are torn apart by the secrets that start to fall. Is Mr Takahashi to blame?
The Japanese Imperial Army unleashed a wave of attacks on Northern Australia, with particularly devastating effects on Darwin – the city being hit with more bombs than Pearl Harbour.
Mr Takahashi (and other falling secrets) is a theatre performance that turns the lens upon ordinary people caught in the storm that was World War Two. It focuses upon Darwin’s multicultural and Indigenous women whose lives were forever changed by the bombings of February 19, 1942.
