In Between Two

Joelistics & Sietta


Performance 4a is thrilled to announce our new show in development for 2016


…when hip hop lands in your lap as if delivered by a 60s beat poet… it will cause your heart to swell, just so that it can contain the beauty and emotion of powerful storytelling about love, life and this land – Australia.         LIZ TREVASKIS, ABC Darwin

Experience the storytelling, music and performance of Joelistics’ JOEL MA and Sietta’s JAMES MANGOHIG as they explore the soundtrack of their mixed heritage.

Embraced by the Aussie hip hop community, both Sietta and Joelistics are renowned for powerful performances and a soulful connection with their audiences. In this unique show, they share the Asian Australian stories that have shaped their musical careers.

After enthusiastically received readings in Brisbane and Sydney, Melbourne it's your turn to shine!  Be in the audience for a unique showcase of four fresh, raw and contemporary new plays by writers selected from the Lotus Salon, a high calibre training and mentoring program for Asian-Australian artists with an interest in writing for theatre.

Emerging playwrights Hoa Pham, Hiroki Kobayashi, Lian Low and Jeremy Nguyen will see their latest drafts grace the stage for the first time, after workshopping with a professional cast directed by Felix Ching Ching Ho. It is a magical moment, and we hope you'll join us.  Entry is FREE but bookings are essential.  Email This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
