Patrice Balbina’s Chance Encounter With the End of the World

Patrice Balbina’s Chance Encounter With the End of the World

Something unsettling has crept into the neighbourhood.

This event has now passed.

It’s a feeling, a suspicion that disappears when you look at it directly. Patrice Balbina has noticed that small things are starting to disappear. The butcher loses his laugh, the man with the pigeon is losing his patience, and Dad says the government has lost its mind. Even the love of her life seems to be a little further away each day. But you wouldn’t expect the end of the world. Then he rang the doorbell.

Funny, surprising and deeply moving, audiences will see themselves in Patrice, a young Australian girl just like any other, who suddenly has to flee her home to a rickety boat bound for another land. This multi-lingual international production, performed primarily in English, also includes some French, Portuguese and Italian spoken language and takes you on an extraordinary journey.

Patrice Balbina’s Chance Encounter with the End of the World is the final chapter of a two-year international partnership Documents of Poverty of Hope, supported through the European Union’s Cultural Fund.
