The Australian Dream

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, HOME is temporarily closed and this event will no longer be taking place.

We do not know yet how long this closure will last, but this will be at least until the end of March 2020. We will attempt to reschedule as many events as possible and if this is not possible, we will be contacting ticketholders to refund cancelled shows.

Adam Goodes became an inspiring figure in Australian Rules football. Raised by his single Aboriginal mother, he found a sense of belonging and connection in sport. In 2013, at the top of his game, he was the centre of a huge racist row when a 13-year-old girl called him an ‘ape’ in the middle of a game and he had her ejected from the stadium. What ensued was a shocking backlash of vilification and blunt racism.

Drawing upon Goodes’ personal story, Australia’s dark colonial past and its treatment of the Aboriginal population, director Daniel Gordon has crafted a powerful and timely examination of race, identity and belonging.
