News l NEON turns three!

Today we launched the third NEON Festival of Independent Theatre, celebrating Melbourne’s dynamic independent theatre scene with companies presenting their work, their way.

From 14 May to 25 July:


MKA: Theatre of New Writing presents a rioutious double feature – a ‘post-punk prison fantasy’ followed by a tale of carnivals and carnivores


The Zoey Louise Moonbeam Dawson Shakespeare Company explores the legend of Calamity Jane, from gun-slinging, foul-mouthed cowgirl to Hollywood musical pin-up girl


Dirty Pretty Theatre creates a dance theatre piece based on Hermann Hesse’s novel Steppenwolf


Long-time collaborators Susie Dee & Patricia Cornelius join forces to tell the gritty story of three women who defy gender demarcations


Elbow Room pitch iconic female characters against each other in a battle royale to ask ‘have there ever been women in theatre?’


Following the premiere of their latest work Catalogue, Rawcus takes part in the inaugural NEON Residency, a week at MTC commencing the creative process for their next project


The Last Tuesday Society concludes the Festival with Pimp My Play, reworking a play from the canon that we all know and love … or one that we used to know and love.

Plus there are readings, workshops, talks and more! Tickets to the productions are only $25 each, or see all five for $100 with a NEON PASS. You can see the full season here.
