'Mendoza Mania' investigates the heritage of boxer Daniel Mendoza (1764-1836) who lived for a time across the road from St Margaret’s House where he’s credited as writing the first ever sports biography. It’s a local story and highlights issues relevant today: anti-Semitic hate, sporting heroes and masculinity.
As part of this project, we devised our very own community play with the Brave Girl group at St Hilda's East Community Centre.
"The group presented very well how struggles over prejudices 240+ years ago can be overcome and encouraged us to think about social issues that occur today." - Review by Daniel Mendoza Appreciation
