Home Country - Sydney Festival 2017 @ Colo Lane Car Park


Urban Theatre Projects (UTP) gives audiences unforgettable experiences in unusual locations. For their latest venture, they invite us into three tales unfolding in a multi-level car park in Blacktown – exploring different ideas of what it means to be ‘home’. With Aboriginal Elder Uncle Cheeky as your host, Home Country shares perspectives on place and identity. Over the course of the evening (which includes a communal feast) meet Ali from Algeria and neighbour Zaphora who clash over cultural values, sharp-witted Pita caught between the old and 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 is a theatrical triptych blending the intimate and the universal. Go on the journey as the sun sets over the Blue Mountains. Soak up the Festival atmosphere in Blacktown with live music and art installations as you make your way from Blacktown station to Home Country. Enjoy the warm summer nights at Blacktown Arts Centre’s pop-up bar and garden. Cast: Shakira Clanton, Nancy Denis, Danny Elacci, Billy McPherson and Jonathan Nicholas.
