Whittlesea Commissions – Breadsticks




November 5, 2020

Bukjeh‘s plans to present a major performance in the City of Whittlesea in 2020 were dramatically disrupted by Covid-19. Forced, like so many, to “pivot”, and find new ways to connect communities when we’re required to remain more physically separate than ever before, stay tuned for updates on the future of Bukjeh in the municipality.

In the meantime, the City commissioned Bukjeh artists to prepare a creative response to their experiences of lockdown. These works were written and produced in the middle of Melbourne’s Stage 4 lockdowns, a beautiful time capsule. Rania Ahmed and Meena Shamaly
