GET IT LIVE - GET IT AT TRADES HALL, the home of conscience culture ...

BED presented by Syntax Theatre Company
Do you know what you "Nana" is doing tonight?
In one giant BED lay seven elderly people, all tucked in tight. As all
seven drift in and out of sleep, all is not as it seems behind their
elderly facade . . . Transported back to their youths through their
dreams. Mundane situations become surreal, even the simplest task of
getting a glass of water becomes a great "Great Escape". BED offers a
visual feast of exotic bra jugglers, acrobats and a traumatic voyage
under the sea . . . all taking place in one BED!

without sentimentality, sturdy but moving." - John Peter, Sunday Times

THE WAITING ROOM presented by Melbourne Workers Theatre and Platform 27
Why does Australia fear the world's most helpless and vulnerable
MWT & Platform 27 dare you to look past the razor wire into the white
face of of Australia's refugee policy. THE WAITING ROOM is hardhitting
political theatre that aims to debunk the racist myths about refugees
and confront audiences with the reality of existence inside detention
The Waiting Room is a limbo existence where there is no belonging, no
identity and no known future. It is the destination of many of today's
asylum seekers, who survive terror and war only to be incarcerated by
unfriendly bureaucratic systems. Through text, multimedia and physical
theatre, this Kafka-esque parable exposes the fundamental xenophobia of
Australia's policies.
