A timely and vibrant new work that's both poignant and full of humour, Melbourne Talam puts contemporary social issues centre stage.

By Rashma N. Kalsie

"You have to time it right. If you follow the beat of the city, your life never goes off-key".

Three young people see each other across a crowded city station. They just missed the train. Now they wait. They think about home: Punjab, Delhi, Hyderabad. And how they just can't seem to get the city's talam - it's rhythm - right. A sudden and calamitous event changes the lives of all three, and their future in Australia. 

Suitable for ages 14+

Audience Advice: Contains coarse language, mature themes and references to suicide.

Education packs will be available in 2017.
