Teacup In a Storm

The world premiere of our very own brand new work based on the incredible stories of carers in our local region.

The world premiere of our very own brand new work based on the incredible stories of carers in our local region.

“Some would say I’m an idiot, some would say I’m a saint.”

Teacup in a Storm is a window into an unseen world of crashes, laughter and carrying on.

Carers make up one in eight Australians and account for 1.9 billion hours of unpaid work annually. Teacup in a Storm draws on a series of detailed interviews with a number of these carers from the local region, exploring their personal experiences. Teacup in a Storm has been made right here at The Joan by The Q – our contemporary theatre production program, which has evolved from the creative lineage of the Q Theatre Company and its more than fifty years of commitment to the presentation and production of new theatre works. Teacup in a Storm brings together the dynamic local circus-maker, carer, teacher and artist Therese Cook, with acclaimed playwright Noëlle Janaczewska and emerging performer Marie Chanel, under the direction of award-winning artist Nick Atkins. Make sure you’re there when this exciting team unveil our world premiere new work! Expect: A heartfelt piece filled with light and shade, coloured by experiences and shared stories.

Friday 26 February 12pm is a Relaxed Performance. This means the show is modified slightly for audiences that may, for a variety of reasons, need to move, make noise or exit the space at times.
