'You have to time it right. If you follow the beat of the city, your life never goes off-key.'

Three young people see each other across a crowded city station. They just missed the train. Now they wait. They think about home: Punjab, Delhi, Hyderabad. And how they just cannot seem to get the city’s talam – its rhythm – right. A sudden and calamitous event changes the lives of all three, and their future in Australia.

A timely and vibrant new work that is both poignant and full of humour, Melbourne Talam puts contemporary social issues centre stage.

Suitable for ages 14 and older. Contains coarse language, mature themes and references to suicide.
