Fundraising Event | Saturday 28th May, 7:00pm 

This night at the Chinese Museum is a historical experience taking you back to the late 1850s, where you will discover the history of Chinatown and the determination of its community in a rough and tumble Victorian society.

The Chinese Museum, built originally as a cabinet maker's workshop, is the fitting back- drop for this spellbinding contemporary musical journey and later, you will travel on a tour around the Museum where you will discover the actual 150-year-old artefacts of the time.

Come with us back in time and on location, where this hip hop drama will present the challenges of newcomers to a new multicultural world - Melbourne, Australia.

  • a pre-event Chinese dinner at Chine on Paramount, 101 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne

  • a hip hop historical drama, set in an immersive theatre in the round over cups of tea
