It's a long way to distant Mabuiag Island in the shimmering Torres Strait. But with Jimi Bani as your guide, it will soon feel like home.

Best known as one of the shining lights of Australian stage and screen, Jimi Bani is about to take on the most challenging role yet: the next chief of the Wagadagam people. Step inside this rich living culture with the aid of Bani’s grandmother, mother, son and brothers to help light the way.

An evening of music, standup, dance and storytelling, My Name is Jimi unfolds within a constantly surprising landscape of dioramas and pop-ups, dreamtime visions and swirling constellations. There's also Jimi's breakdancing, despite the family's protests. Though the lives of the four generations appearing on this stage have been radically different, what they share is far strong than anything that divides them. Now you can share a piece of it too.
