Theatre Works and Tashmadada Present

By Tashmadada and Voices of the South Side

More elderly women are experiencing homelessness than ever before. Recent census data shows that in five years the number of older woman experiencing homelessness has increased by 31%. Homelessness Australia last year reported the number of older women "couch surfing" increased 83%, and the number of older women sleeping in cars rose 75% in four years.

A powerful premiere season, unHOWsed sees these women take centre stage and shines a light on the unexplored territory of lives lived on the edge. A multi-disciplinary performance work about older women's homelessness, specifically based in the City of Port Phillip, unHOWsed spotlights real voices - strong and significant.

Joining forces on this provoking new work, Tashmadada and Voices of the Southside have brought together an exciting creative team and ensemble for this season.

Tashmadada is a contemporary arts company committed to bringing together practitioners as well as providing a forum for discussion about the arts. They encourage collaboration between artists from different art forms and cultures, connect with new artists, and engage with the arts ecology. Voices of the South Side is a partnership between Port Melbourne Neighbourhood Centre and Inner South Community Health, Port Phillip Community Group and Southport Community Housing which aims to reduce the marginalisation of social and public housing communities in Port Melbourne and South Melbourne through community arts and community development.

This production is proudly supported by Theatre Works, the City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund and the City of Darebin.
