Carriageworks Associate Artist S. Shakthidharan will develop A Counting and Cracking of Heads, a new Australian work which follows the uprooting and resettling of a family over four generations from Sri Lanka to Australia.

Through their journey, we see a Sri Lanka driven by, but not surrendering to, violent divisions – and an Australia transforming of, but also transformed by, the people that arrive at its shores. This new work in development will be a stylised, epic drama about love, violence and hope within a contemporary Australian family. Presented by Carriageworks.
