Lost: 5 | Poppy Seed Festival 2017



by Daniel Keene & Illumi-Nation Theatre
World Premiere
November 23 - December 3

A streetscape, reminiscent of Finders Street in Melbourne, home to many who are lost; lost to society, to their families and often, to themselves. Five poetic monologues from Award-winning Australian playwright, Daniel Keene that invite audiences to consider the multi-faceted issue of homelessness through the eyes of those who have found themselves, simply, yet despairingly, lost.

A streetscape, reminiscent of Finders Street in Melbourne, home to many who are lost; lost to society, to their families and often, to themselves. Director of Illumi-Nation Theatre, Michele McNamara, has brought together five poetic monologues from Award-winning Australian playwright, Daniel Keene that invite audiences to consider the multi-faceted issue of homelessness through the eyes of those who have found themselves, simply, yet despairingly, lost.

Illumi-Nation Theatre is dedicated to illuminating and humanizing issues of social justice, giving voice to those in the community to have been misunderstood, unjustly treated or marginalized and promoting greater understanding of the hidden complexities involved. The success of their production 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane for the recent Melbourne Fringe Festival, ‘a brave production of an extremely difficult text’ (Stage Whispers 2017), that highlighted issues of mental health demonstrates that this company is willing and able to bring the difficult issues to the attention of Melbourne audiences.

Ilumi-Nation Theatre will, once again, collaborate with composer and sound design MBYRO (Matt Brown) who will perform on stage with the ensemble. In addition to his original compositions he will sample organic street sounds and bring forth a sense of multi-culturalism through music and spoken word.

Daniel Keene has been described as a ‘dangerous playwright’ as he ‘works right on the moral edge’ (SMH). He has been acclaimed throughout Australia, the United States and Poland and since the late 1990s has established himself as one of Europe’s most notable contemporary playwrights.

The monologues chosen by McNamara are:

The Rain

Two Shanks

Getting Shelter

A Foundling

Kaddish

The production of Lost: 5 by Daniel Keene is a direct response from Illumi-Nation Theatre to the unacceptable situation faced by those who have no place to call home and although we, as a company do not have the resources to help, we can initiate conversation.
