Have you ever been told you’re good looking for an Aboriginal? Have cab drivers driven straight past you? When you turn 40, do you qualify for elder status and free cups of tea? These are the hard-hitting questions Cope ST’s Colin Kinchela will attempt to answer as he is grilled by fellow Cope ST member Kodie Bedford in their second show in the series: This is your black life.
Kodie, who learnt everything she knows from Oprah Winfrey, will be covering arts, Indigenous politics and social issues as she drills down Colin’s passion, motivations and life story. And in a world exclusive, Kodie has uncovered thought process into his Facebook statuses and will uncover his success into getting likes. Using a mix of videos and live performance, This is your black life, will reveal the secret lives of each member of Indigenous arts collective Cope ST, in an absurd, insightful and comedic style that will be your entertaining monthly dose of Redfern gossip. No topic is off limits and no embarrassing anecdotal stone will be left unturned.
