Mono/Stereo was a theatre development project started by Tuggeranong Arts Centre in 2018.
Facilitated by playwright Didem Caia, the project was designed to challenge the dominant narratives of Tuggeranong identity through the stories and experiences of local residents. A series of workshops took place in early 2019 and resulted in a first draft play text.
Unfortunately, due to the extenuating circumstances of COVID-19 and the summer 2019/20 bushfire crisis, the planned further development in 2020 was unable to proceed.
In this video, Didem Caia discusses the project’s process, the value of participatory development, and the effects of global events on a local project.
