The Audition at La Mama
About The Audition
The Audition is a new 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 in Australia. They are both outsiders of uncertain status. The asylum seeker just like the actor can become expert at being patient with a force that keeps them waiting without having their hopes dashed. This is the liminal space that we will explore in The Audition. The stage is a country in itself. With its own rules and regulations. Or lack of them.
