Powerhouse Youth Theatre presents their final and most potent work of 2015:
TEAM AUSTRALIA: Stories from Fairfield
Developed across 18 months of weekly training, research and practice, TEAM AUSTRALIA is the next major work from the PYT Ensemble. This work follows on from the enormous success of their premier work IN THIS FAIRFIELD which performed to three massive seasons at PYT, ATYP and Parramatta Riverside.
“There are some experiences that remind you why you go to theatre in the first place. Last night was one of them.” – Kate Champion, ex-Artistic Director of Force Majeure.
TEAM AUSTRALIA offers six perspectives on their experiences as young Australians. This work is intimate, irreverent and deeply political.
Written and performed by the PYT Ensemble: Luke Cignarella, Monica Kumar, Mahdi Mohammadi, David Robertts, Barbara Schefer and Amanda Sullo
Facilitators: Karen Therese, Sean Bacon and Kym Vercoe
Sound Design: Patrick Howard
Lighting: Luke Cignarella
Following its premier season at Powerhouse Youth Theatre, Team Australia is headed to Walsh Bay for a season at the Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP).

TEAM AUSTRALIA ON POZIBLE
PYT needs your support to get TEAM AUSTRALIA on stage and on the road.
We have been in development for over a year writing and devising and working with some of Sydney’s best performers, writers, and choreographers – now we need a final push to cover cost of staging the final production.
