the 2017 festival
by Jean Tong
14 - 26 November
A musical romp more sophisticated than an average mod-rom-com, Romeo Is Not The Only Fruit takes the star-crossed lovers audiences know and love, and makes them even better as star-crossed lesbians.
by Ruby Johnston & Benjamin Nichol
21 November - 2 December
BREAD CRUMBS is a warped retelling of the well-known fable Hansel and Gretel – it’s a crass and highly stylised exploration into the link between gender roles, domestic abuse and the scarring impact it has on young people.
by Daniel Keene & Illumi-Nation Theatre
November 23 - December 3
A streetscape, reminiscent of Finders Street in Melbourne, home to many who are lost; lost to society, to their families and often, to themselves. Five poetic monologues from Award-winning Australian playwright, Daniel Keene that invite audiences to consider the multi-faceted issue of homelessness through the eyes of those who have found themselves, simply, yet despairingly, lost.
by Gravity Dolls
28 November - 9 December
Inspired by retro video games, board games and the absurdity of Japanese game shows, Melbourne-based circus-duo Gravity Dolls creates a new interactive performance game: Tandem.
