Kids – MTC CONNECT: NEON Readings
July 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
By Sean McIntyre, Director Marco Romero, Associate Director Ivan Rojas
Told through the eyes of nine children drawn from diverse local and ethnic multicultural backgrounds, Kids delves into pressing issues facing Australian society. It tackles ideas of identity, empathy and migration, exploring Australia’s attitudes to immigration.
Kids takes inspiration from the classic Latin-American play Juegos A La Hora De La Siesta, by Polish-born Argentinian playwright Roma Mahieu, a critical, subversive and highly political commentary on the Argentinean dictatorship.
A future staged version of this work will be directed by Ivan Rojas. This reading is presented by Jimmy Flinders Productions.
This NEON Reading is presented in association with MTC CONNECT, a partnership between Multicultural Arts Victoria and the Melbourne Theatre Company that engages talented theatre practitioners from diverse communities to build a richer arts landscape. As part of NEON, MTC’s Festival of Independent Theatre, three MTC CONNECT Ambassadors, Rani Pramesti, Rashma N. Kalsie and Marco Romero present their first stage readings - offering a chance to be part of a vital stage of a play’s development, beginning the dynamic conversation between writers and audiences.
