My Name is Jimi

Presented by Queensland Theatre, Centre of Contemporary Arts and Cairns Indigenous Art Fair.

Mabuiag Island: a remote speck in the sparkling blue of the Torres Strait. Thousands of years of rich history and culture, with just a few hundred people keeping its flame. Now its favourite son is joking in three languages with his grandmother and torturing his son with spontaneous public break-dancing. Charismatic actor Jimi Bani (Mabo, The Straits, Redfern Now) whisks you away to his island for an eveing of music, dance, stand-up 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. The islanders have lived through dark times and light, and this intimate show examines the challenges and tragedies they have faced with hope, honesty and humour, looking towards a bright tomorrow.

My Name is Jimi is the story of a small community of people clinging tightly to each other, and fighting to protect what really matters, in whirling chaos of a rapidly changing world.
