La Boite Theatre’s Indie Season is always a real treat for Queensland audiences wanting to discover some of our best independent and upcoming talent and this November La Boite will be staging three fascinating new works including the hard hitting and thought provoking, ‘The Chat’.
(2 for 1 offer – see below)
Created by ex-parole officer and performance maker James Brennan and the acclaimed David Woods, The Chat asks audiences how and when should people be forgiven for their crimes? Who gets to decide? What happens if they get it wrong? The Chat brings ex- offenders, parole officers, criminologists and academics together with some of Australia’s wildest performance makers to come to grips with these questions.
The structured one-on-one parole interview will be taken, subverted, transformed and reborn as an innovative performance score that compels audiences to consider the complex nature of what they are seeing – interrogation, anthropological study, confessional. How are the lives of those convicted of crime assessed, recorded and in what ways does this determine their systemic value?.
The Chat will be staged 4-14 November at La Boite Theatre, Kelvin Grove. For tickets and information about all productions in La Boite’s Indie season, check out www.laboite.com.au.
