PYT Fairfield will continue to support the development of three new works by emerging Western Sydney artists. 

The Hen House is new music theatre work inspired by the extraordinary, humorous and tragic true stories of female migrant factory workers, including the life of Bernarda Papic, late grandmother to sisters Josipa and Mara, who worked at Ingham’s Chicken Factory in Western Sydney from 1968 – 1998.

Created by Mara Knezevic and Josipa Draisma

Stage Soldiers explores KD’s experience with identity growing up within Australia’s contemporary military system. Through this work, Keith will also interrogate and the psychological and dehumanising effects of human conflict within military history.

Created by KD Robinson

Low Standards is a fierce multi-disciplinary, devised theatre piece exploring the similarities between the queer and disabled experience told in AusLan dialect. 

Created by Bedelia Lowrenčev and Jeremy Lowrenčev

This project is proudly supported by Australian Council for the Arts, the NSW Government through Create NSW.
