Re-Emergence is the culmination of over three years of exploration with disabled actors in regional NSW, interrogating the question, “how do we emerge from bushfires, covid19, drought and other disruptions over recent years?”.

We’ve collected stories, heartfelt conversations, and dramatic scenes. Blurring the lines between documentary and drama, “Re-Emergence” captures the raw essence of these stories, highlighting the resilience of communities in times of disruption. A fictional story about a fractured community awaiting a storm is interspersed with real stories of isolation, perseverance and community-building from the cast- all experts on overcoming adversity.

Get ready to be part of something truly special! Rebus Theatre’s Re-emergence project is a groundbreaking initiative that celebrates the talents and perspectives of disabled adults from regional NSW. We’re collaborating with award-winning theatre artists to create an original film that shines a spotlight on the amazing stories of people in our community. 

Through a series of fun and engaging filming workshops, we have explored how COVID-19, drought, flood, and bushfire have impacted people with disabilities in the region over the past three years. 

We’re talking red-carpet screenings, collective filming days, and a whole lot of creativity!
