News: The Village opens at La Boite this weekend


la boiteOur fave Brisbane theatre will premier new work by A La Boite and MDA Ltd production. Known for bringing evocative work to the stage La Boite always manages to deliver productions that are thought provoking conversation starters, staying with the viewers until long after the final curtain.

The Village showcases the cultural diversity of Australia and honours the courage, strength and determination of the women, men and children who have made this country their new home.

The Village uses the verbatim stories of refugees and people seeking asylum to guide audiences on an experiential journey.

Witness how ordinary people have found themselves in extraordinary situations and persevered to tell their life-changing stories. Audiences will engage with these stories first hand through an interactive performance experience.

The Village has been created specifically with secondary students in mind, but everyone is welcome at The Village to enjoy this collaborative theatre project.

“My intention is to be able to portray the day-to-day challenges, experiences and personal stories of refugees and asylum seekers during their journeys to Australia”
—Moe Assaad
