Mildura Arts Centre and Melbourne Theatre Company present
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. And think. They think about home: Punjab, Delhi, Hyderabad. And how they just can’t seem to get the city’s talam
– its rhythm – right. A sudden and calamitous event changes the lives of all three, and their future in Australia.
A timely and vibrant new work that’s both poignant and full of humour, Melbourne Talam
puts contemporary social issues centre stage.
Suitable for ages 14+
Contains coarse language, mature themes and references to suicide.
