The Melbourne Theatre Company is hosting readings of four new Australian plays, all of them about Melbourne. Artist Claire Cunningham, who has won critical acclaim for her unique dance pieces involving the crutches she's used since she was 14 years old, is exploring the themes of religion, disability and the universal appeal of a cup of tea in her new work. And we head inside Sàn Art in Vietnam, one of the arts organisations which has stepped in to foster the contemporary art scene in Vietnam.
