White Pariahs R&D

In autumn 2019  we undertook a research  and development period of White Pariahs, unearthing the hidden stories of white working class women who ‘crossed the line’, and fell in love with, or married Black men. The women risked hostility from wider society and often from those closest to them, to defy convention, cross the colour-line […]

But like the Pheonix we’ve risen from the ashes to rebuild yet another magnificent puppet and continue the journey. Following a creative […]

The Trouble with Access

Early in September we held an extraordinary week-long creative laboratory exploring fresh ways of layering access modes into theatre-making. We worked with award-winning playwright and radical theatre artist Lachlan Philpot, CEO of Playwright Australia, and widely published academic and award-winning Director, Alyson Campbell, to explore the artistic possibilities of Philpott’s narrative voice as part of an access […]
