Drawn from the real-life experiences of its international collaborators, this work-in-progress is a glimpse at the creations of two exciting interdisciplinary companies. Listen to excerpts of the script and music being developed for 宿 (stay), followed by a Q&A with the creatives and performers.
Kurinji is a Western Sydney-based arts company co-founded by S. Shakthidharan, writer of Counting and Cracking, the acclaimed Helpmann Award-winning highlight of Sydney Festival 2019.
Singapore’s SAtheCollective is a multidisciplinary company of like-minded artists and musicians whose work seeks to redefine the boundaries of creativity through interdisciplinary and trans-cultural practices.
Working together for the first time on 宿 (stay), their collaboration contrasts the densely populated urban environment of Singapore with the vast spaces of remote Australia. Together they investigate the underlying environmental and economic systems that bind two seemingly different worlds. 宿 (stay) is presented as part of independent theatre season True West.
