Conversations with a Fish


27 Jan–3 Feb

  • AGES



Will a fish always be a fish?

A fish faces a variety of existential dilemmas relating to human experience. What happens? YOU DECIDE.

A highly original work revealing the depths of the human psyche in relation to our biological heritage through the figure of the fish. From fish-leather costumes to rigorous philosophical debate, this hilarious series of dark comedies is sure to make you think deep and laugh loud.

This world premiere is First Nations artist Helah Milroy’s writing and directing debut. Featuring Phil Thomson, Bruce Denny, Paul Rowe, Joey Vale, Gabriel Critti-Schnaars and Jimi Fleming.

“Helah Milroy demonstrates non-derivative thinking in her work. There is no way of second guessing what she will serve up” – Hellie Turner (Writer/Dramaturg)

The next step for First Nations theatre” Elinor King (Producer) Yirra Yaakin
