h3>An imaginative new Australian voice on Sydney’s independent stage
Back in 2011, Natalia Savvides was one of the young and emerging playwrights selected for our very first Re-GEN emerging playwright initiative. Her play – The Light Box – received a week-long development workshop in collaboration with an emerging creative team – director James Dalton and dramaturg Declan Greene – working with an impressive cast of actors including Terry Yeboah, Paula Arundell, Danielle Cormack, Eamon Farren, Russell Dykstra, Josh Quong Tart, Guy Simon and Emily Morrison.
Working alongside the National Script Workshops, Natalia and the creative team had the opportunity to observe the script development of Angela Betzien”s Helicopter and Little Borders by Phillip Kavanagh. The Light Box was also presented as an animated film / reading event as part of the Sydney Film Festival last year and a production at independent theatre 107 Projects in Redfern in July 2013, both also directed by James Dalton.
Our Re-Gen project is all about investing in the work of exciting new voices and we are thrilled to see this wonderful new work on stage!
More about the play
It is impossible to predict who you will love. Or who will love you in return. Australian playwright Natalia Savvides teleports this impossibility into another place altogether with her new work, The Light Box.
