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.
Based on a story by Dimple Bani, Jimi Bani, and co-created with Jason Klarwein, catch My Name is Jimi at the Centre of Contemporary Arts Cairns.
Charismatic actor Jimi Bani (Mabo, The Straits, Redfern Now) whisks you away to his island for an evening of music, dance, stand-up and storytelling.
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 the whirling chaos of a rapidly changing world.
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.
