A companion piece to La Boite’s critically acclaimed 2017 offering The Village, The Neighbourhood is an intimate story-telling experience that transports audiences across countries, borders, and oceans in search of a home; all from within the walls of the Roundhouse Theatre.
The revelatory work tracks seven individual, real-life journeys from the experience of fleeing homelands, to seeking refuge and creating, fostering and discovering a new community (or neighbourhood) in Australia.
The Neighbourhood promises an evening of honest, authentic, and deeply moving theatre, imbued with a sense of hope, power and recognition.
Written and co-created by the story-tellers themselves, The Neighbourhood traverses a range of story-telling forms to examine the concept of home and the vital importance of belonging. The Neighbourhood is co-created with Todd MacDonald, Aleea Monsour and Ari Palani with an ensemble of seven local story-tellers.
