Noel Tovey

Noel Tovey AM was born in Melbourne, the son of an Aboriginal–New Zealand mother and a father of Scottish–African descent. Tovey’s early years were entrenched in poverty, abuse and neglect. Against all odds, and despite these hardships, he forged a successful theatre career in Australia and the UK. Tovey taught at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and he co-founded the London Theatre for Children. He returned to Australia in 1990. Tovey was the artistic director of the Indigenous Welcoming Ceremony at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. In 2014, he was awarded the Uncle Bob Maza Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award for outstanding contribution to Victorian Indigenous theatre. In 2015, he received an Order of Australia.
