Going Home – Development Showing

Sat 22 May

By Kirli Saunders

Inspired by Kirli Saunders’ own reconnection to Country and Community, Going Home explores the intersection of the removal of four siblings taken from their families in 1970’s and the homecoming of those siblings to Country in present day. Weaving fiction with truth, poetry with prose, and language with land, this work offers solace to those similarly disconnected, and celebrates the strength, survival and warmth of First Nations communities. It explores the intergenerational impacts of our shared history, confronts what we leave behind when we are forced to go, and prompts us to think about what lies ahead.

Pay What You Feel

We want to make it easier to experience new works. So for this event there is no set ticket price. Instead, you simply reserve a spot, show up, then pay what you feel the performance is worth afterwards.

1. Reserve your spot for free.

Register and reserve your spot online.

If this is your first time, you will need to sign up. All you need is an email address and a credit or debit card (note – no money is charged to your card.)

2. See the show. 

You know this bit…

3. Pay what you feel. 

After the show, we’ll send you an email asking how much you want to contribute. You choose the amount based on your experience and your circumstances. There is no minimum or maximum amount.

Important: If you reserve a seat and don’t show up on the night, you will be charged a $20 no-show fee per seat. This ensures that the artists don’t miss out for their work.
