This spring we're welcoming an array of thought-provoking and dynamic performances to the Studio. From folk storytelling to entrepreneurial ambition to asteroid catastrophe, the programme includes a broad selection of talents for all interests.
Rice runs on the Studio stage from Monday 7 – Wednesday 9 March. Nisha is a young hotshot executive working for Golden Fields, Australia’s largest producer of rice. Yvette, an older Chinese migrant, has her own entrepreneurial ambitions. The two form a powerful bond as they navigate the complexities of their lives.
Next, A Partnership on Saturday 12 March, in which Ally and his partner Zach dissect what it means to be gay in the modern world. A frank, funny and heart-breaking conversation, accompanied only by a ticking clock, the shadow of internalised homophobia, and the question of whether we can – or should – be ‘normal.’
Josephine plays on Wednesday 16 March, for ages 7+. Josephine Baker, the little girl from Missouri who became an original twentieth century icon. Dancer, actor, activist, campaigner, spy and mother to the multicultural Rainbow Tribe. But, almost 50 years after her death, nobody remembers Josephine. And she just can’t allow that.
Then, Dispatches on the Red Dress on Saturday 19 March is an immersive one woman show from multi award-winning folk musician Rowan Rheingans, which asks can hope for the future be found in the darkest pockets of our history?
WOLF! runs from Monday 4 – Wednesday 6 April. Beneath the Moon, under the mountains, amongst a flock of woolly sheep, Jack is bored … find out what happens when Jack cries WOLF! For under 5s and their families, original music and puppetry tells a tale you thought you knew, inspired by Aesop’s Fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
LAVA is on Wednesday 11 May. Boy meets girl. Boy can’t talk to girl. And a small asteroid has hit the capital city. From award-winning playwright James Fritz is a funny, tender and moving new play about friendship and reconnection in the aftermath of catastrophe.
