The Floating World - Melbourne Theatre Company 1982

by John Romeril

Investigates the ambivalent feelings behind the camaraderie of international trade relations. A rich, ironic study of Australian xenophobia. The play is now forty years old, and unfamiliar to contemporary audiences who would have been lucky to see its first performances in the tiny Pram Factory in 1974 or any of the handful of intervening performances of the play. By all accounts, that first production was an extraordinary experience with the audience seated on deckchairs inside a chicken wire compound shaped like a ship. That audience would have been familiar with the Australian Performing Group’s experiments and, no doubt, expected to see a play that unsettled them a little, while making a political point.
