NEW SHOW - From Little Things (Melbourne)

'From Little Things...', is a tale of wonders, a story of two lovers living in the same country yet inhabiting different worlds. A haunting and layered piece which explores the collision of modernity and the past, home and culture and what it means to be a human, a lover, a son, a daughter, an Australian.

Traversing back and forth in time, us, the audience, is taken on a spellbinding journey, through memories and myths. All brought vividly to life using elements of martial arts, dance, storytelling, music and song. We visit battle fields in ancient China, the gold fields of Bendigo, present-day Melbourne and the many decades in between.

We watch as through re discovering the stories of their ancestors, these lovers weave their disparate lives together to create a new shared history and a deeper understanding of the basic humanity which connects us all. We see them buckle under the weight of history and stand tall in the knowing that it is, From Little Things that big things grow….

'From Little Things...', the inaugural production of the Australasian Chinese Theatre Company. The ACT has a mission to create and produce intrinsically cross-cultural performances with elements borrowed and fused from Australasian/English and Chinese traditions, ancient and modern.
