NZSL interpreted performance 18 March 5pm
Australian legend Jack Charles is coming to Auckland to tell you his story.
Jack is an Aboriginal elder, actor and musician who has led a very colourful life. He has been homeless, a drug addict and spent time in jail.
Jack is a survivor of Australia's stolen generation of children - Aboriginal children who were taken from their families by the government. His story about the sad history of Aboriginal abuses has similarities to the experiences of many indigenous people around the world including Maori and Pacific people in New Zealand.
Jack's colourful storytelling and sense of humour make this show a fun and positive experience. Jack is accompanied by a live band, video footage and he even makes pottery onstage.
