There is no ‘us and them’. There is just us. What does it mean to belong in contemporary Australia? How do our languages, cultural heritage and traditions connect us? As a society the most difficult thing is to look at ourselves; to ask ourselves what work is still needed to foster healing and inclusion. Threadbare explores the conflict between otherness and belonging in contemporary Australian society and how art, music, poetry and dance can help us connect with one another.

This September join Fipe Preuss, Elnaz Sheshgelani, Phillipa Russell, choreographer Kathleen Gonzales and producer Natasha Jynel for Threadbare: a one-hour multi-disciplinary show that celebrates the true diversity of the Australian identity. Presented in languages including English, Spanish, Tongan, Arabic and Auslan Threadbare invites audiences to shift their perspectives and open their eyes. Built around personal reflections from local poets including Ileini Kabalan and musicians such as Louis Majiwa Threadbare brings together artists from diverse backgrounds to explore the commonalities of the human experience.

Developed as part of the Melbourne Fringe Compass Program Threadbare is Natasha Jynel’s latest self-produced show, following quickly on the heels of her production debut: Auto Bio Queen. Shifting gears from the self-reflective Auto Bio Queen, Threadbare explores what identity and belonging means for all of us as a contemporary, multicultural Australia.

Threadbare will be presented at The Butterfly Club* on September 19 and September 21-25. Booking recommended.

*As The Butterfly Club is not a wheelchair accessible venue an accessible showing will be held at Hares and Hyenas on Tuesday September 27 at 9pm. Visit melbournefringe.com.au for more information.
