Calling our Victorian-based Pasefika young creatives!!
We are back in the zone with our Pasefika youth theatre project: UNDER THE TREES. Currently a work-in-progress, the theatre work will be directed and written by PICAA Theatre Director Asalemo Tofete. For this project, we are working in partnership with Know Your Roots Inc who are based in Shepparton (regional Victoria) where the shows will be held, and also with Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) who are producing the shows for us.
Connecting with our Pasefika communities in regional Victoria is an important of this collaboration. The Pasefika youth community in Shepparton – children of migrant farmers – have massive amounts of creative talent and so much to share with the world. The project will definitely be a major 2021 highlight for both communities involved.
This month we’ve posted an EOI for Pasefika youth to come through and take part in a production that will put our young creatives on the stage. It’s gonna be an exciting few months and what an awesome opportunity this is to join Pasefika youth communities from both Melbourne and Shepparton! We can’t wait to show you the updates – watch this space!
See you on stage!
