Event Blak Social: Songs of the Queencitiverse

Blak Social: Songs of the Queencitiverse


09 December 2023

Hear Blak Social perform songs from their fictional Indigenous-futurist universe, the ‘Queencitiverse’.

Led by Alethea Beetson (Kabi Kabi, Wiradjuri), Blak Social is a First Nations collective that works across theatre, music, and film. Their debut theatre work, Queen’s City, flips the 1980s science fiction comedy genre to tell a story with Blak history at the fore.



We are committed to making the IMA accessible to people of all abilities, their families, and carers, as well as visitors of different ages and different backgrounds.

The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.

If you plan to attend this event and have specific support needs we can accommodate, please contact engagement@ima.org.au, call (07) 3252 5750, or ask our friendly staff on-site. Read our access information for visitors here.
