Milk Crate Theatre is set to move audiences with their new Visible Theatre production, Belonging, over two shows at Sydney's Carriageworks on Saturday June 23rd.
Milk Crate Theatre works with people who have experienced homelessness and/or social marginalisation to create theatre that creates change. In doing so, Milk Crate Theatre have created a unique theatre company and a much needed and respected community.
Belonging is far from your average theatre show. Visible Theatre exposes what happens behind the scenes; the creative process, the script, the performers, the audience and even the staging itself: all as a means to find the truth within the Ensemble’s experience. The outcome is a studio-style production centred around interviews from 14 Ensemble members, discussing the intricacies of what it means to belong. In doing so, the stage transforms itself into a space for catharsis and exploration.
Set at the scene of a wedding ceremony, the show explores the human condition through tales of love and loss. A sense of belonging is found through shared experiences of ostracism and marginalisation.
Milk Crate Theatre is currently developing their company production, ‘Fearless’ which will be held at Carriageworks this September.
