Works by The Collective

The Collective for Longhouse

The final Longhouse  for 2017 is fast approaching.  Join us on THUR 23 NOV at Carriageworks to celebrate the successes of Asian Australian theatre-making in 2017 and to glimpse the future with a showing of excerpts from new works in development by The Collective.

The Collective is an independent group of multi-skilled, multidisciplinary Asian-Australian performance artists eager to reclaim control over their practice. They first met and collaborated together during the Director’s Workshop organised by CAAP and STC in 2016.

They will showcase excerpts from Melissa Lee Speyer’s Original - a play inspired by the author's autobiographical experience of family chasms; Sandy Maestro’s Vegemite, Fairy Bread & Sawdust - a musical comedy using props of iconic Asian and Australian condiments; and Sam Wang’s Asian Arts Engagement Crew - a satirical comedy about a group of corporate-hippie Asians.

What better way to mark the end of a great year, than to see vibrant new work, and to network with your peers from the Asian Australian performance community.  We look forward to seeing you there.
