Citizen Theatre's newest project Forgotten Places' creates an immersive theatre and art experience that transports audiences to a vision of the future, inspired by the City of Stonnington.

The demands of our fast-paced lives can take a heavy toll on mental health and wellbeing. Citizen Theatre believes the remedy to the modern way of life is a live art experience to invigorate our imaginations.

Citizen Theatre is seeking photographic submissions from people who live, work or play in the City of Stonnington that highlight local areas that may have been forgotten about.

The Citizen Theatre team will incorporate and transform a selection of these photographic submissions into the Forgotten Places' immersive experience: an interactive future city where paintings, sculpture, singing, storytelling, music and colour will give audiences of all ages a transformative experience to change the way they view and interact with their local area.

Citizen Theatre Artistic Director Jayde Kirchert says audiences can expect to be surprised. "With lots of different performances and visual art being presented simultaneously, audiences can let their curiosity guide their journey through our imagined city. No two people will have the same experience."

To inspire locals with their photographic submissions, Citizen Theatre are holding a Forgotten Places Photography Walk' - a free guided photography walk with Citizen Theatre's visual designer Stu Brown. The walk encourages people to see the world around them with a fresh perspective through the art of photography, "Sometimes we're so busy we forget to look up and take in the world around us," says Stu Brown. "The photography walk is one way of inspiring joy in people by noticing something new in a place that is familiar."

Citizen Theatre is an independent Melbourne theatre company that has been producing works in non-traditional spaces since 2013, including Twelfth Night in Hares & Hyenas bookshop and The Importance of Being Earnest at Como Historic House & Garden. Forgotten Places is supported by the City of Stonnington's Arts & Cultural Grants program.

Photographic submissions are being accepted from now until November 30, 2018. For information on how to submit or to sign up for the Forgotten Places Photography Walk, visit
