The Art House is honoured to now be the premiere 2021 venue for the brand-new restaging of Heart is a Wasteland, a musically driven love story across the red centre by ILBIJERRI Theatre Company. Wyong will be the first audience after the RISING Festival in Melbourne was sadly cancelled due to the most recent Victorian lockdown.

“We feel privileged to open this piece to audiences and host its respected director, Rachael Maza and ILBIJERRI Theatre Company here on the coast” said Executive Director Anne-Marie Heath.

Heart is a Wasteland is a roadtrip romance set over a few nights through the middle of Australia’s enthralling landscape. Its universal love story makes it relatable; its beautifully arresting lyrics and live music makes it accessible; and its First Nations voice makes it necessary.

This whisky-fuelled story of love lost, love gained, and our shared yearning to do better with our lives plays for one night Wednesday 21st July.

“a testament to the healing power of falling in love… a delightful romantic comedy grounded in a rich contemporary Indigenous context.” StageWhispers

Written by John Harvey. A RISING Co-presentation. Supported by Sidney Myer Fund. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
