Melbourne Talam by Rashma N.Kalsie

Presented by Melbourne Theatre Company

By Rashma N. Kalsie

You have to time it right. If you follow the beat of the city, your life never goes off-key.

Three young people see each other across a crowded city station. They just missed the train. Now they wait. And think. They think about home: Punjab, Delhi, Hyderabad. And how they just can’t seem to get the city’s talam – its rhythm – right. A sudden and calamitous event changes the lives of all three, and their future in Australia.

A timely and vibrant new work that’s both poignant and full of humour, Melbourne Talam puts contemporary social issues centre stage.

Genre: Non-naturalistic contemporary Australian drama. Key themes include culture, community, choices, journey, identity and belonging. Contains coarse language, mature themes and references to suicide. Suitable for ages 14+

A great excursion for Performing Arts, English and all Humanities students. Education packs will be available in 2017 – contact education@mtc.com.au for more details.
