Inspired by a town in New Mexico, USA, that changed its name to a television game show called Truth or Consequences in the 1950's, HELLO THERE, WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU investigates the politics of identity, history and happiness.
"Hello There, We’ve Been Waiting for You” has been commissioned and developed through Next Wave’s Kickstart program for Next Wave Festival 2014 and by St. Martin’s Youth Arts Centre. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and by the City of Melbourne through the Arts Grants program.
