About the Show
Welcome to a tropical island full of palm trees, phosphate mines, coconut water and kids. Set against a backdrop of handmade costumes and colonialism, this is an absurd, true story about Leonardo da Vinci, the Pacific, seagull shit and state-sanctioned abuse.
This new work sees Samara Hersch (Sex and Death, META) and Lara Thoms (A Singular Phenomenon, Howl) collaborate with seven young people in Melbourne in response to Australia’s ongoing relationship with Nauru.
Part school musical, part history lesson and part political probe, We All Know What’s Happening sees people too young to vote confront power, complacency, children’s rights and the future.
Presented by Arts House
Children of all ages are welcome to attend this show, however it does contain some adult concepts.
