Event Details

EVENT UPDATE: Due to the current lockdown in Melbourne we are currently working to reschedule ECHELON. We will update the season dates on this page as soon as we are able to.

All ticket holders will be contacted directly by our Ticketing team – we appreciate your patience during this time, and look forward to welcoming you back to the theatre soon!



In this cyber world of smoke and mirrors, it’s time to be alive #nofilter

What defines our ‘self’ when identities are constructed across multiple platforms? What (or who) determines a switch in our code? While we latch onto our handheld devices like advanced limbs, is anyone listening?

Privacy is questionable. All opinions count. We answer to none but crave each and every notification in search of acceptance. Chatrooms, trolls, cancel culture and anonymous shaming. Online hatred, IRL solutions, the back and forth.

The evolution has begun.

The ILBIJERRI Ensemble is an artist development program open to Australian First Nations emerging theatre practitioners, young people and community members aged 15+. Participants have the opportunity to learn new skills; collaborate with emerging and established First Nations theatre artists and build industry networks and career pathways.
