Worn Art Revamped - X Girl Red and the Tragic Pearl

In November 2018, Theatre Kimberley’s exciting new Worn Art production concludes the dramatic story of Pearl, a historical story about a Broome local from mixed heritage.
X Girl Red
will thrill and entertain audiences over two spectacular nights of dance, theatre, costumes, and circus.

Theatre Kimberley, in partnership with community groups and artists from the Kimberley, Australia and overseas, will showcase the incredible, multicultural talent, that Broome is renowned for, not just in the Kimberley, but all over Australia.

In 2011, after 14 years of continuous shows, Theatre Kimberley decided not to continue with its Worn Art productions, but the community demanded more. Starting in 2014 with
The Great Pearl Tragedy,
followed in 2016 with the hugely successful (two sell-out shows)
Poppy – Child of the Lane,
2018 Worn Art audiences will be part of the final story in the Pearl trilogy.

X-Girl Red
follows the path of the Tragic Pearl as it returns from WW1. The pearl passes through the hands of the local multi-cultural groups who live in camps along the foreshore of Roebuck Bay. The pearl finally returns home to the pearling beds off the coast of Bidyadanga, and the guardianship of the local Indigenous people.
