Twenty years in the making, Riverside Theatres presents 'Sleeplessness'

Shining a light on the intergenerational impacts of institutionalisation and migration, Sleeplessness, the latest work by Australian artist Kaz Therese, will be playing at Riverside Theatres from 19-20 August 2022.

Part mystery, part documentary, part forensic investigation, Kaz Therese’ solo work Sleeplessness maps a remarkable Australian story told across three generations of Western Sydney women, and the unimaginable impact of institutionalisation in Australia. It is the story of Kaz Therese trying to uncover their identity as one of the Forgotten Australians.

From Budapest to Sydney, Kaz Therese took on a 20-year journey to create Sleeplessness, uncovering family history, werewolf mythology, and bearded ladies.

Sleeplessness fuses film, text and choreography to create a compelling new Australian work.

Kaz Therese is an interdisciplinary artist and cultural leader with a practice grounded in performance, activism and community building. Their work is inspired by place and narrative from working class & underclass settings.

Commissioned by Carriageworks. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.

A Q&A will follow the Saturday 20 August matinee performance.

When: Friday 19 August 8:00pm, Saturday 20 August 2:30pm (Q&A to follow) & 8:00pm
Where: Lennox Theatre, Riverside Theatres - Corner of Church and Market St, Parramatta
Tickets: Full price $49, Concession $45, Groups 8+ $44. Discounts available for Riverside Theatres’ Members. Transaction fee $4.60.
