Perth Festival Focus

Using humour and satire the theatre piece explores how children struggle with the ideas of home, adolescence and love as they navigate the absurdities of the adult world. 

‘Children of the Sea’ premiered at the 2021 Perth Festival by culturally and linguistically diverse young performers and a vocal ensemble led by singer-songwriter Kavisha Mazzella.  

It was co-produced by Performing Lines WA and Encounter with funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
