This is a development and networking opportunity for artists to progress their understanding of the form, test audiences, meet other practitioners and build their careers as cabaret performers. This is a perfect opportunity for emerging performers with shows they believe have the potential to develop into full length performances to be seen in a professional context. An esteemed array of industry insiders, media and festival programmers will be in the audience looking to encourage and identify these artists for next years event. We wish to present a diverse program and value original well-written concepts that have high entertainment value and are easy to promote. We encourage shows that explore the cabaret genre and push the boundaries; comic, 18+ , tragic, jazz, folk or electronica, past, present and future, esoteric and highly visual, family-friendly, circus-style or part-improvised - basically anything goes!

Over the Moon and Far Away

The Theatre on Chester NSW
Carla Moore
Drama
9877 0081

In 1942, when war came to the region, the expat women of South East Asia had no skills other than their ability to socialize. During three and a half years of deprivation and incarceration, these women became innovative survivors keeping their husbands’ children safe; women who looked at the moon every night and dreamed of freedom. Through the eyes of 14 year old Emelia, we experience the life of Australian nurses, English and Dutch expats and local Indonesian women in a Japanese POW camp in Java during World War II. Through her experiences and interactions, Emelia learns not just about survival, but about the human spirit, love, friendship and religion, and what it means to be a woman. Roles available for women of all ages.
