‘KIDS’ takes inspiration from the classic Latin-American play ‘Juegos A La Hora De La Siesta’ (‘Games During Naptime’), by Polish-born Argentinean playwright Roma Mahieu, a critical, subversive and highly political commentary on the Argentinean dictatorship.

By turning the focus to Australia, ‘KIDS’ tackles ideas and themes around identity, empathy and migration, exploring Australia’s attitude to immigration, and the ways in which refugees may contribute to and enrich a country’s culture.
