At the theatre – ‘The Neighbourhood’

Real Stories.
Real people.

Presented by La Boite & Multicultural Australia, in association with Empire Theatres

The revelatory work tracks seven individual, real-life journeys from the experience of fleeing homelands, to seeking refuge and creating, fostering and discovering a new community (or neighbourhood) in Australia.

The Neighbourhood promises an evening of honest, authentic, and deeply moving theatre, imbued with a sense of hope, power and recognition. 

Written and co-created by the story-tellers themselves, The Neighbourhood traverses a range of story-telling forms to examine the concept of home and the vital importance of belonging. The Neighbourhood is co-created with Todd MacDonald, Aleea Monsour and Ari Palani with an ensemble of seven local story-tellers.

Be part of changing the conversation, join our partners Multicultural Australia and stand with other Queenslanders in welcoming new arrivals.
