Melbourne is about to meet RISING, the biggest arts festival to take over the city, and two of the hottest tickets are right here at Arts House.

Set Piece is the world premiere of the latest work by Anna Breckon and Nat Randall, whose last performance The Second Woman has wowed audiences all over the country. Shifting between theatre, film and dance, this new sensory spectacle is filled to bursting point with dazzling originality and synesthetic pleasures

The Dispute sees children telling the stories of their parents’ separation or divorce. Adapted by Jackson Castiglione from a work by French/Algerian theatre-maker Mohamed El Khatib, it’s a sensitive yet deeply compelling exploration of hard subjects as told by those who’ve lived through them.

These two major theatrical works are going to start conversations. Be part of them.
