First look in the Anthem rehearsal room

The countdown is on to the opening of Anthem!

Susie Dee is directing an extraodinary ensemble of 14 performers who are exploring the worlds created by writers Andrew Bovell, Patricia Cornelius, Melissa Reeves, Christos Tsiolkas and Irine Vela.

This major new work co-presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and Melbourne International Arts Festival and initiated by Arts Centre Melbourne has its world premiere season from 1 to 6 October.

We’ve been producing the premiere in association with Arts Centre Melbourne, and cannot wait to bring this searing reflection of our current social and political landscape to the main stage.

In everything we do, we acknowledge that we live on Aboriginal land and constantly learn from the wisdom of First Peoples.

Where we are and the history that precedes us informs how we work and how we move forward.
