Imaginary Borders is a free theatre project for young people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds, including indigenous backgrounds, between the ages of 13 and 18. It is an opportunity to come together, play, and share stories through theatre.
We meet once a week to play games, get to know each other, hear each other’s stories, and bring them to life with movement, music, speech and song. We welcome all stories –real life stories, stories from different families or cultures, and stories we make up. We welcome all languages and cultures. No previous experience in theatre or music is necessary.
Imaginary Borders will culminate in a one-off performance for family, friends and invited guests.
Imaginary Borders is led by Robin Davidson of Rebus Theatre and Felix Machiridza of Arts With A Mission. Felix is a musician, social worker and theatre artist from Zimbabwe who leads the band Zambezi Sounds and the children and youth arts group Arts With A Mission.
Imaginary Borders is a Tuggeranong Arts Centre Community Arts and Cultural Development project, in partnership with Rebus Theatre, supported by the ACT Government.
