Welcome Brown’s Mart’s 2020 Season!
Thursday, 27 February 2020
It’s lights, ready, action…for tonight’s official season launch of Brown’s Mart’s 2020 Season of theatre and live performance.
“Programming a season that will achieve the right balance of stories that will excite our loyal theatregoers and speak to new audiences, can be both a challenge and a joy,” says Sean Pardy, Artistic Director, Brown’s Mart Theatre.
“I believe our 2020 season has achieved this goal – an exciting and engaging mix of theatre and live performance drawn from the talented and diverse Darwin community which can speak with great meaning to our audiences,” Mr Pardy said
Brown’s Mart Theatre’s 2020 Season features two new plays from Top End theatre companies, a winning production from the 2019 Darwin Fringe Festival and an Australian classic, Away by Michael Gow.
Another exciting addition is the increase to six play readings in 2020, mixing classic scripts with new work from local and international actors and directors
Theatre is a collaborative art form and in 2020 Brown’s Mart will collaborate with Australian Theatre for Young People, Sydney (ATYP) on the Fresh Ink Program for emerging artists, Corrugated Iron Youth Arts on our Education production, Moogahlin Performing Arts, Sydney on our First Nations Writers program, and the Sydney Theatre Company with their School Drama program. We will work in partnership with the Darwin Festival, Happy Yess, No Lights No Lycra, Top End Comedy and the Darwin Fringe Festival to bring diverse, high quality performing arts to the precinct.
Music fans will get their fill with the return of Live on Friday’s and Club Culture entering its second year as we showcase the diverse performing artists of the Darwin community. More than just a venue, Brown’s Mart is a crucible of creativity. Artists, and the work they create, are the reason we do what we do. Artists will be supported, encouraged, nurtured and developed as they engage with one, some or all our programs.
