1927 theatre company: Animals and Children Took to the Streets

Created & Performed by 1927
Writer, Director & Performer Suzanne Andrade
Film Animation & Design Paul Barritt
Costume Designer & Performer Esme Appleton
Composer & Performer Lillian Henley

Trust no one, not even your shadow!

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling, stinking tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf... is always at the door.

Seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation this is the wickedly twisted new tale from the multiple award-winning company behind Malthouse Theatre's 2008 sensation Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. After a premiere season at Sydney Opera House and before a run at the London National Theatre, the group tour their newest work, an even more enigmatic tale of dubious characters inhabiting a dystopian metropolis of inner city paranoia.

1927's black humoured tale of The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is a truly unforgettable production and deserves acclaim of its own. -- *****, Time Out Sydney This is an entrancing show. Don't miss it. -- ****, Sydney Morning Herald

Eight short plays inspired by Balkan New Wave songs put together into a theatrical PLAYlist - sounds hard to envision, but this was exactly what both new and established Croatian playwrights had to do. Their task was to pick their favourite song by a New Wave band from the region and write a short play no longer in duration than the song it was inspired by. The sold out production was created in five days of intense work in March 2011 and is now returning to Teatar &td in its new and improved run.

16th November 2011 – Teatar &TD small hall – 9.30 p.m. – duration 60 min.
17th November 2011 – Teatar &TD small hall – 9.30 p.m. – duration 60 min.


PLAYlist will be visually supported by an exibition by Belgrade photographer Zorica Bajin Đukanović, portraying ex-Yugo rock music protagonists of the 1970s and '80s.


Doctor Brown: Becaves

Dr Brown is the stage persona of Philip Burgers, a London-based performer/clown/idiot originally from California. He trained for two years with French Clown Master Philippe Gaulier and is currently touring his internationally acclaimed one-man show, 'Dr. Brown: Becaves'. This internationally renowned visual comedy absurdist and surrealist was named 2010 Best Newcomer by the Sunday Times (UK), and Time Out Critic's Choice in 2010. He was nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Original Comedy in both 2010 and 2011, and for a Total Theatre award in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He has garnered rave reviews in eight countries, sold out his seasons in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Edinburgh, Prague, Dubai and Hong Kong and "resoundingly justifies his growing cult fame" **** - The Guardian, UK 2011.

'About as bonkers an hour of comedy as ever you would find - part Mr Bean, part Buster Keaton, all odd' **** (Sunday Times).
'An utterly bizarre, dreadfully funny hour of uncompromising anti-comedy' **** (Time Out).
'Rude, messy but rather marvellous, full of provocation, impishness, waywardness' **** (Times).
'Laugh-out-loud hilarious... bizarre genius' **** (List).
'Genius ... There are visions you'll never get out of your head' **** (Herald Sun, Australia).
