Relax. Get comfortable. Be at ease with history... with the present... with the future. It's a free country. Say what you wanna say. Everything is A-OK. Right?

Political theatre outlaws Natalia Kaliada and Nicolai Khalezin of Belarus Free Theatre have conceived an explosive new work with five extraordinary Australian performers: Gregory Fryer, Sophie Ross, Niharika Senapati, Hazem Shammas, and Daniel Schlusser. Together, they interrogate the Great Australian Silence: a struggle to speak out against atrocities both in our own country and abroad, and the danger of speaking the truth.

Who is meant to have an opinion in modern Australia? Maybe it’s best you don’t answer that.
