Fear of a Brown Planet are undertaking a three year residency at Footscray Community Arts Centre. Fear of a Brown Planet (FOABP) are Nazeem Hussain and Aamer Rahman, creators of the critically acclaimed stand up comedy show which premiered at the 2007 Melbourne Fringe Festival and won Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2008.

In a highly idiosyncratic study of Melbourne's West, Aamer and Nazeem will combine film, comedy, blogging, workshops, performance, hip hop, community and the media, to create a totally new variety of satire.

FROM THE ARTISTS:
In our residency at FCAC, we are interested in highlighting and discussing racism candidly, particularly in the western suburbs of Melbourne, one of the Victoria’s major multicultural hubs.

Cultures, communities and experiences collide, mix and confront each other in unique ways in the West, providing exciting opportunities to discuss and explore an exciting and constantly transforming cultural landscape.

We intend to explore issues of racism and discrimination in the West but also hope to empower young people to not only document and discuss their experiences, but also to discover new ways to challenge discrimination creatively through performance and media.

Central to this project will be a video blog that documents our experiences in the West, the stories of the people we meet, and the issues that are important to them – as well as sketches, stunts and interviews with members of the local community. This forum will allow us to engage with the broader community, in particular the younger, culturally and linguistically diverse community in Melbourne’s West.
