Julian Louis: Book Me In

Date: 18 Jan 2018

NORPA Artistic Director Julian Louis is in town for Circus City in Parramatta to lend his voice to a panel discussion.

Before he flies back to Lismore, he’s also cramming in as much theatre as he can into three days. “I’m here seeing work that may be programmed into our season, to connect with colleagues and just to be stimulated as a director,” he says.

His hot tickets?

Backbone

“It’s directed by Darcy Grant, a NORPA associate artist. I saw this show in the final stages of rehearsal in Adelaide and it is beautiful and quite special, I think. Lighting and set designer Geoff Cobham has made a huge impact on the work.”

Backbone plays at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta until January 21

Alice in Wonderland

“This adaptation looks really interesting and I’ll also be seeing Captain Hook’s Pirate Party and The 78 Storey Treehouse at the Sydney Opera House. I’ve had to come down without my kids so I haven’t told them all the great children’s shows I’m seeing.”

Alice in Wonderland plays at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta until January 27

Barber Shop Chronicles 

“I love multiple narratives and this sounds fantastic with use of songs and stories and dance.”

Barbershop Chronicles plays at the Seymour Centre until January 28
