Welcome to Come To Where I Am – Australia.
Writers from across the country have been commissioned to create a new 10 minute story that will be made into a short video postcard –a snapshot of the place where they live right now – of the places, people and environments that shape their experience as Australians and artists. They take many forms – autobiographical monologues, new works of fiction, and contemporary tales based on traditional stories.
Each work was selected by the Critical Stages Touring team in consultation with Paines Plough. The two companies have worked together to choose pieces that highlight regional and rural experiences alongside writers from our urban and suburban communities. They have been filmed at partner performing arts centres, in the homes of our writers, and in the very places they have written about – their home town.
