Join us inside the Laurinda rehearsal room to be a part of a conversation with Melbourne Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Anne-Louise Sarks and some of the extraordinary team behind the adaptation of Alice Pung’s much loved and lauded novel. Alice Qin will lead the discussion between playwright Diana Nguyen, director Petra Kalive, designer Eugyeene Teh and actor Fiona Choi, alongside Anne-Louise.
Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP)’s Longhouse program aims to forge a strong community of artists interested in exploring Asian Australian themes through performance.
Refreshments will be served in the rehearsal room after the panel. Space is limited, so booking early is recommended.
Laurinda is commissioned with support from the Malcolm Robertson Foundation, with play development supported by MTC’s Playwrights Giving Circle Donors, The Ian Potter Foundation, Naomi Milgrom Foundation, The Myer Foundation and The University of Melbourne, and community engagement support by Playking Foundation.
