Boroondara community members are set to be celebrated by theatre-maker David Williams, who will lead the cast to explore the role that culture plays in the Boroondara community. Part talk-show, part confessional and part celebration, A Cultured Place will stimulate the hearts and minds of audiences at the Kew Court House on Sunday 8 December.
This year’s successful application for the Boroondara Arts Initiative, A Cultured Place is a truly unique theatre experience where members of the local community have been chosen to have their lives highlighted in this special performance. David Williams will craft evocative performances from materials such as interviews, archives and transcripts of public inquiries.
A Cultured Place reflects the diversity of the Boroondara community, exploring what culture is, where it’s found, who it involves and how it affects the people of Boroondara. Over the past months, David has conducted interviews with various members of the community to learn about their experiences, working and being a part of the Boroondara culture. This insightful performance will generate discussion about life and culture, by sharing stories and perspective.
