Ngapa William Cooper

Thu 23 May 2024
Adult tickets from $40
A rich new collaboration between composer Nigel Westlake, singer/songwriter Lior and language activist Lou Bennett, Ngapa William Cooper is a tribute to the life of Yorta Yorta activist William Cooper.

In 1938, Cooper, an Aboriginal activist who played a pivotal role in establishing equal rights for Aboriginal Australians, led one of the most striking Australian responses to the events of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany. This new work is a way of preserving and promoting his legacy and bringing to light this remarkable act of compassion.

Ngapa William Cooper combines Westlake’s signature rich musical palette with moving vocals from Lior and Bennett. Sung in English and Yorta Yorta language, this powerful story celebrates a man who left behind a legacy of resistance, solidarity and empathy.
