Developments, presentations and provocations curated by bAKEHOUSE Co-Artistic Director Suzanne Millar.
THE LADEN TABLE – a produced reading of a brave piece of writing challenging ‘dinner table racism’ played to packed houses over 3 nights at ICE in 2014. With the divisive rhetoric of Trump and the constant surprise of Pauline in public office, this is about as topical as it gets.
FREEFALLING – early stage development, with a creative team of Renee Lim, Clare Hennessy, Carissa Licciardello and Beverly Callow. We’re still exploring the possibilities of a work that examines a life lived on the outside of normal, with a particular look at diversity and issues of mental health. With just a smackerel of Winnie the Pooh...
JATINGA – an international co-production and part of the broader bACE Mumbai project building relationships between artists in Sydney & Mumbai. Jatinga is a bAKEHOUSE commission highlighting our work in Kamathipura, Mumbai - Asia's oldest and largest red light district. We'll be joined by award-wining Mumbai-based playwright Purva Naresh as part of the bAKEHOUSE Cultural Exchange.
A series of open rehearsals, produced readings, rooftop jazz with Rose Costi & Friends; and 2 special panels Women In The Arts Making a Difference on the Streets featuring Purva Naresh, writers from the Abe's Babes Collective, bAKEHOUSE Artistic Director Suzanne Millar, documentary maker Liz Courtenay and hosted by special guest Mike Coward.
