About First Things First - SATURDAY 20 JULY
'FIRST THINGS FIRST' is a performance piece, written by elisabeth m eitelberger & written and directed by bello benischauer.

Their most recent production gets staged inside an unusual environment, which reinforces the question: How well do we know the people around us, and to begin with, how well do we know ourselves?
Elisabeth Eitelberger, Jemma Fleming, Ross Hamilton, Helah Milroy

Fear | Shame | Stigma | Loneliness | Loss | Ties | Hope - A performance that digs deep into the human psyche
Every day, every minute, every second something can trigger a feeling that we have. We live in a busy world, often unaware of the greater emotion that is linked to memories, stuck in our subconscious mind. Mostly we simply don’t have the time to reflect on the underlying cause for our behaviour and actions.
