2018 – Fumo negli occhi
Italian theatre is back in Brisbane for a second year! After last year’s sell-out Italian language production, Danteatro and Growl Theatre are collaborating again to present a show entirely in Italian. With English translation displayed above the stage (surtitles) for those who don’t speak the language, or for hearing impaired.

Keeping up appearances in front of the neighbours takes hard work and clever tactics. All the more so when we are in 1960s Italy, with the economy booming, incomes rising, and more and more households acquiring consumer goods such as a fridge, a car, or a television set. Meanwhile, young people are rebelling – embracing revolutionary politics, rock music and… yoga!
