Dead Time


WHEN: 20 May 2015 – 29 May 2015

COST: $25/20 concession

WHO: Lace Balloon

Lace Balloon presents Dead Time, a new play inspired by the story of Dr Mohamed Haneef: an Indian national working on the Gold Coast, arrested in 2007 under Australia's anti-terrorism laws on suspicion of being connected to the attack on Glasgow Airport.

It is a story of one man’s incredible struggle, as well as the struggles we each have to face and the challenges we face as a country. How do we protect national security? And at what cost to our freedom? Who are we letting lead the conversation about race, religion and national identity? And how are we keeping them to account? What can happen, and who will step up, when the time between arrest and charge is potentially unlimited?

Performed and devised by Paul Armstrong, Lara Lightfoot, Abi Rayment, Robert Rhode, Melissa Kathryn Rose, Eleni Schumacher, Barton Williams and Kailah Cabanas

Set and costume by Irma Calabrese, lights by Emma Lockhart-Wilson, sound by Peter Tucker.

Written and directed by Fleur Beaupert.
