Presented by Urban Theatre Projects, Blacktown Arts Centre and Sydney Festival
Staged in a multi-level car park in Blacktown, HOME COUNTRY is a theatrical triptych that explores place, identity, and what it means to be home.
With Aboriginal Elder Uncle Cheeky as your host, join us for a communal feast and meet the passionate Ali and Zaphora who clash over cultural values; sharp-witted Pita caught between the old and the new Greek culture and the Blacktown Angel, restless in the afterlife.
Written by Andrea James, Peter Polites and Gaele Sobott, and directed by UTP’s artistic director Rosie Dennis, HOME COUNTRY blends the intimate and the universal. Go on the journey as the sun sets over the Blue Mountains.
“From the rooftop you can see the mess of city life: other multi-level car parks, apartment blocks with satellite dishes, land dug up by developers… To the west, you can see the Blue Mountains. To the east, a thumbnail-size Sydney Harbour Bridge shimmers on the horizon.” – The Sydney Morning Herald
