Presented by Melbourne Playback Theatre Company

emergence (n.)1640s, “unforeseen occurrence,” from Latin emergere “rise up” (see emerge). Meaning “an emerging, process of coming forth”

We have been forced to stop, we have stayed in our homes, we have video called our friends, we have felt stuck and we have felt restless, we have cautiously stepped outside, we have been relentlessly busy, we have rushed ahead, and we have circuit broken again. Things are changing, and as they do, new ways of living are emerging.

But meanwhile, life goes on, life begins anew, there is reemergence, there is rebirth. Join Melbourne Playback Theatre Company as we celebrate the rebirth of La Mama, and reflect on the emergence of new and old ways of living.

“A visionary company.” – Theatrepeople

“Terrifically skilled.” – Cameron Woodhead, The Age
