Andy is an Australian traveller outrunning her broken heart. She has taken residence as a host at a Bangkok party-district karaoke bar where she meets Thai-American Arisa, who’s on a personal quest to connect with her mother’s culture. When the two meet, sparks fly.

Three of Australia’s boldest voices, Gillian Cosgriff, Kat Henry and Julia-Rose Lewis unleash Neon Tiger; a wild love story set to the beat of Bangkok’s back alleys and go-go bars.

“When Brisbane Powerhouse sent Kat, Gillian and I to Thailand on a creative development trip, we were practically strangers. Ten days later, I was head-over-heels for these women. When it came to writing about our experiences, it seemed only fitting to tell a story about falling in love under bright lights in a city you know nothing about.” – Julia-Rose Lewis, Playwright

Meet Assistant Creative Anna Whitaker

Anna Whitaker is a sound designer, composer and audio engineer with a palate for experimental, acousmatic works and surround sound composition. She graduated from Queensland Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music Technology in 2017. Anna is passionate about manipulating sound – creating intricate textures and layers that communicate with each other – taking the listener on a unique, sensory journey. Her vast background in classical music (particularly violin) and self-confessed obsession with spectromorphology and sound shapes, has resulted in Anna creating musical concoctions from the traditional and contemporary worlds.

This desire for cross-pollination of musical realms is reflected in Anna’s interest for multidisciplinary collaboration, working for Bleach* Festival, White Rabbit Theatre Productions and recording the orchestral score for Australian Feature Film ‘Goldstone’. She often collaborates with other like-minded musicians and multidisciplinary creatives to open and inspire her learning in order to explore fresh ideas and processes.
