Haircuts by children
This January, ten year olds will be offering the public free haircuts at salons in Parramatta and Darlinghurst. After a team of children participate in a series of training workshops with local professional stylists, you are invited to get a free haircut. A trim or a totally new look - it's entirely up to you and your young stylist.A whimsical performance that playfully engages with the enfranchisement of children, Haircuts by Children pits our trust in the younger generation against the thrills and chills of vanity.

Stephen Page brings together three generations of his own relatives in KIN, a contemporary story of family, community and history.
Told through the eyes of seven young Aboriginal boys aged between nine and 14, KIN dramatically explores the contrast of their ancestral history and their urban upbringing influenced by popular culture, hip hop and football, and investigates their own beliefs about the world and their place in it as young Aboriginal men.
