THE CABIN! By Joseph O’Farrell (JOF)

I SEE YOU LIKE THIS by Jessica Wilson, with Matilda Woodroofe and Carla Gottgens

How does your child see you? Give them the camera, and find out.

Often the reluctant subjects of their parent’s cameras; children are asked to smile, look natural, stay still and come in closer.

I See You Like This turns the camera around, children become the art director and their adults the subject. Through this new lens, what will the child’s imagination reveal?

SEASON: 13 -14 July, 2019 Darebin Arts Centre

A Normal Child by Disability Slapstick Plan & Ridiculusmus

If there is a new normal, everyone’s crazy and nobody’s ill.

An epic narrative of vast and imperfect comedic proportions, A Normal Child navigates the intricacies of disability representation in a daring, funny, and complex work.

SEASON: 23 October – 2 November, 2019


Taking the Waters by Lemony S Puppet Theatre

Three sisters gather together after many years apart. One of them is dying.

In this complex world, old patterns of behaviour play out, old wounds are re-exposed and ultimately, a new reality where three becomes two must be found.

Created in collaboration with internationally celebrated artist Kyoko Imazu, singer-songwriter Susannah Espie and Lemony S Puppet Theatre, Taking the Waters is a visually stunning, aching and humorous examination of the absurdity of life and death.

SEASON: 20 – 30 November, 2019
