THE LIFEBRARY Comes to Adelaide in July

True Ability is taking over the City Library and bringing a series of intimate interactions to create understanding, empathy and promote human rights, inclusion and diversity.

The Lifebrary is inspired by similar projects around the world. The True Ability ensemble has put their own theatrical twist on the concept, creating a bespoke performative conversation where each performer becomes a "Breathing Book" and each audience member becomes a "Life Listener" by choosing from a narrative menu of personal stories.

Staring the True Ability "Breathing Books": Rachel High, Kym Mackenzie. Justine van Eyssen, Jye Parry, Alexandra Hill , Hannah Beinke

Every Story in Lifebrary was written and created by each member of The True Ability Ensemble with dramaturgy & direction by Kelly Vincent & Alirio Zavarce

"Unseen was magnificent, messy, real, funny, touching,human, insightful and polished production" One Hour With Reagan

Beautifully raw, brave, captivating and honest, UnSeen opens doors on misconceptions and shines a light on the faces behind them. It does so with brilliant care and collaboration, storytelling, candid humour, and by casting a rich, poignant experience. Radio Adelaide- Emma Wotzke
