STONE THE BOATS

August 20, 2015-September 9, 2015

Thurs – Sat |

Candlelight Productions presents a COLLIDE Initiative |

Boats. They carry hopes and dreams, seeking freedom and fleeing despair.

Candlelight Productions presents a new multimedia theatre piece about asylum seekers and the storm of opinions surrounding their arrival upon our shores. Fear. Anger. Compassion. Forgiveness. Perseverance. Follow the journeys of five people swept up in this controversy that is affecting us all. A detention centre worker, a politician, a migrant, a news reporter and an asylum seeker: all grappling with their own dilemmas, each seeking to turn the tide in their own lives.In a world in which we are all seeking our own types of refuge, who has the right to stone the boats?

Stone the Boats was borne out of Candlelight Productions’ ‘[When Art & Justice] COLLIDE’ Initiative. It has been generously supported by the Welcome Home Asylum Seeker Picnics.

Thurs – Sat 7.30pm | Sat matinee 2pm
