Undergoing a study of Psychological Sciences, with the idea of pursuing music therapy and using music as means of healing, Theatre started listening to music from the APY Lands, including Frank Yamma and Irrunytju Band, where he learnt to fluently speak and sing Pitjantjatjara. Singing in language sparked Theatre’s interest in his own Gunditjmara heritage as he set about talking to the elders, looking through historical documents, where he discovered Barry Blake’s book “The Warrnambool Language”. Using Blake’s analysis and old sentences recorded by James Dawson, Theatre had written his first song in the Gunditjmara, ‘Ngathuk Ngalina’, the first single and title off his upcoming Album.
Theatre’s debut album Ngathuk Ngalina, to be released on September 22, was recorded in Melbourne at Audrey Studios.
