This month features emerging theatre maker Jamila Main
with Tim Mackie
In an Australian cultural environment that is almost entirely bereft of respect from our leaders and courage from our representatives, MAP are stepping up to do what we can the only way we know how, by creating opportunities for the next generation of theatre makers in this country.
Show them your support as well and join us on November 26th.
About the performance
‘Geode’, noun. A geological structure that is essentially
hollow except for a mineral deposit. Geode
explores the various facets of a relationship that is no longer enriching
the people involved. Geode investigates
the emotional investment and sacrifice of two people at the time of the
relationship’s ending. Geode has been
created by theatre maker Jamila Main and features her original text, with
movement and choreography developed in collaboration with Tim Mackie and Nicole
Allen. The work explores what we expect and define as ‘theatre’, within
traditional constraints and now on the livestreaming platform.
