Tune into The Breakfast Spread Wednesday August 22 for your weekly arts update with State of the Art. This week, Milo and Annika speak with production ambassador, Candy Bowers, about South African production The Fall.

Making its Australian debut at the Arts Centre, The Fall is a powerful piece of documentary political theatre. Rising from the #RhodesMustFall movement, the collaborative piece of theatre emerges from the heart of South Africa, written and performed by an ensemble of seven students who were involved in the uprising.

Race, class, gender, sexism, colonialism and ideologies of patriarchy – core to global conversations and interventions today - are recounted in personal experiences and tackled head-on, seeking to unpack discrimination in all its forms.

The Fall is part of Big World, Up Close - a powerhouse performance series showcasing the most compelling new works from across the globe. Tapping into urgent energies from Africa to the Middle East and Australia’s own shores, each piece in the series reveals profound and personal stories told by vital voices in music and theatre.

Tune in to The Breakfast Spread Wednesday August 22 from 8am for a behind the scenes discussion and head to the Arts Centre website for tickets.
