S. Shakthidharan premieres a new work at Carriageworks, weaving stories from the streets of Western Sydney. Both a live music performance and multi-channel film screening, Rizzy’s 18th Birthday Party is the first in a series of unique and interwoven works by Shakthidharan entitled Colony; a transmedia project connecting ancient and modern Australian migration stories. Featuring an ensemble cast of emerging Western Sydney artists, this is a story about the fragility of friendship and the difficulty of forgiveness in the face of betrayal.
Inaugural Carriageworks Associate Artist, S. Shakthidharan’s practice focuses on collaboration with some of Australia’s most underrepresented and diverse communities. Carriageworks is supporting and collaborating with Shakthidharan over a three-year period to undertake a diverse program of professional development and mentorship that will underpin the development of a series of new Australian works.
Please note this work contains adult themes and frequent strong language, recommended for Ages 15+
