  Heath Bergersen was the last Aboriginal baby to be adopted by a white family (with Norwegian heritage) in Western Australia in 1976. He was taught to be proud of his Aboriginality, enabling him to bridge the gap between his blood heritage and his white upbringing. Using his story as inspiration, ‘Caught in the Middle’ will reflect on the impact of colonisation on the Sámi people in Northern Norway and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia. Through choreography and music, the work will celebrate stories of heroes and warriors from both cultures. Directed by Kate Denborough, this show will feature KAGE’s signature style of vibrant storytelling and distinctive aesthetic.
