On 22 June, the HQ Hepatitis B Community Education Projects Team launched their film, Dancing in the Rain.

Dancing in the Rain follows TK and his family as he learns about hepatitis B after the death of his mother.

Dancing in the Rain aims to raise awareness of hepatitis B. The film highlights the importance of being tested and engaging in regular monitoring and treatment, if necessary. The film explores these serious health issues in a lighthearted way that we hope engages the audience, raising awareness of hepatitis B amongst the African/Australian community in Queensland.

It was an evening of African glamour, brought together by the amazing team at Four Petits Choux who decorated the space, including an artificial hedge with lux styling, which became the backdrop for photos as the guests walked in.

MC for the night, Marylaura Kato, kicked off the evening with a warm welcome and acknowledged the traditional custodians of the land of the Turrbal and Jagera people.

Song and Dance

The first performance of the night was made by MnB Entertainment, a well-known local dance troupe featuring two of the actors from the film, Michel and Latrice Kabamba. Michel plays the doctor in Dancing in the Rain, and Latrice plays Fely.

The dance was followed by music performed by Tichawona Mashawa and his wife, Velvet, who wowed the audience with a drumming circle. Their performance included the traditional Zimbabwean instrument the Mbira.

The Début

After the dance, the festive atmosphere quietened for the screening of Dancing in the Rain. HQ worked with Flick Chicks to bring this project to fruition. From drafting the script, to sourcing actors, filming and producing, this brilliant coop of people helped us produce a professional and informative film, which we hope has an impact on the wider African community here in Queensland.

Following the screening, Fungisai Siggins took to the stage to tell her story of lived experience of hepatitis C, and encouraged all guests to speak to their families about hepatitis B.

The evening ended on a high note, with another performance by MnB Entertainment, and the cast and crew of Dancing in the Rain gathered on stage to applause.

 

If you are from the African community or work with the African community and would like a screening of Dancing in the Rain and education session around hepatitis B, please contact us on 1800 HEP ABC (1800 437 222), or email Lana on abc@hepqld.asn.au

Dancing in the Rain Launch

On 22 June, the HQ Hepatitis B Community Education Projects Team launched their film, Dancing in the Rain.

Dancing in the Rain follows TK and his family as he learns about hepatitis B after the death of his mother.

Dancing in the Rain aims to raise awareness of hepatitis B. The film highlights the importance of being tested and engaging in regular monitoring and treatment, if necessary. The film explores these serious health issues in a lighthearted way that we hope engages the audience, raising awareness of hepatitis B amongst the African/Australian community in Queensland.

It was an evening of African glamour, brought together by the amazing team at Four Petits Choux who decorated the space, including an artificial hedge with lux styling, which became the backdrop for photos as the guests walked in.

MC for the night, Marylaura Kato, kicked off the evening with a warm welcome and acknowledged the traditional custodians of the land of the Turrbal and Jagera people.

Song and Dance

The first performance of the night was made by MnB Entertainment, a well-known local dance troupe featuring two of the actors from the film, Michel and Latrice Kabamba. Michel plays the doctor in Dancing in the Rain, and Latrice plays Fely.

The dance was followed by music performed by Tichawona Mashawa and his wife, Velvet, who wowed the audience with a drumming circle. Their performance included the traditional Zimbabwean instrument the Mbira.

The Début

After the dance, the festive atmosphere quietened for the screening of Dancing in the Rain. HQ worked with Flick Chicks to bring this project to fruition. From drafting the script, to sourcing actors, filming and producing, this brilliant coop of people helped us produce a professional and informative film, which we hope has an impact on the wider African community here in Queensland.

Following the screening, Fungisai Siggins took to the stage to tell her story of lived experience of hepatitis C, and encouraged all guests to speak to their families about hepatitis B.

The evening ended on a high note, with another performance by MnB Entertainment, and the cast and crew of Dancing in the Rain gathered on stage to applause.

 

If you are from the African community or work with the African community and would like a screening of Dancing in the Rain and education session around hepatitis B, please contact us on 1800 HEP ABC (1800 437 222), or email Lana on abc@hepqld.asn.au 

Viral hepatitis (A, B & C)
