The Audition is a multi-authored work that interrogates the protocols and power relationships of the audition process to uncover what it means to seek asylum. The asylum seeker shares something in common with the actor. They are experts at being patient with a force that keeps them endlessly waiting without having their hopes dashed.
The stage is a country in itself. With its own rules and regulations. Or lack of them.
Developed with support from Australia Council for the Arts, Creative Victoria, City of Melbourne, Lord Mayor Charitable Foundation, Inner North Community Foundation and Outer Urban Projects school and community partners.
