FREE TIX - Fallen

FREE TIX - FallenAll locked away... no one can hold it against you once it’s all locked away.

London, 1848. Six women have been promised a clean slate on the other side of the world in the new colonies of Australia. Sealed off from the outside world they cook, clean, sing, and sew, and practice the art of being female while they wait for their new lives to begin. But as the date of departure draws near, the women begin to wonder what reinvention will cost them.

What will such promises make them do? And what about the fall yet to come - the unknown tumble down the edge of the world to a far-away continent…

Inspired by the history of a home for fallen women, founded by Charles Dickens, this imaginative new Australian work asks what happens when the promise of a clean slate is built on silencing your past - and what it takes to break that silence.

Currently based in Melbourne, She Said Theatre was founded in 2006 by co-Artistic Directors Penny Harpham and Seanna van Helten. The company uses performance to explore alternative histories, re-imagine forgotten stories, and encourage a theatrical dialogue with the unheard voices in Australian society. Founded as a direct response to the lack of creative leadership opportunities for women in theatre, they aim to create more active roles for women and other under-represented artists, to bring to life their skills in acting, directing, writing, production, and design.

After a highly successful Australian premiere season at Sydney's Seymour Centre, She Said Theatre now bring their powerful new work to the Melbourne stage. Running this August at fortyfivedownstairs in the CBD, Fallen is a must-see event on the 2018 Arts Calendar.

Kurios | Cirque du Soleil

Given what an immense and perpetual global franchise Cirque du Soleil has become, it must be quite a challenge to keep coming up with new themes while still attempting to conform to a vague unifying style that maintains the brand.

Anthem | Melbourne International Arts Festival

There’s a great deal happening in Anthem, a cross section of humanity meets and the differing opinions and cultures make for great people watching.

Diaspora | Chamber Made and Robin Fox

Diaspora offers the audience a vision of a distant imagined future and wow, what a vision it is!

Aurora | Circus Oz

As climate change awareness reaches an all-time fever pitch, with the likes of Greta Thunberg calling on humanity to save the planet, while business booms for the Australian coal mining industry, Circus Oz’s Aurora could not be more perfectly timed.

High Performance Packing Tape | Branch Nebula

The banal is made dangerous in this one man DIY circus.
