“ It is, I dare to dream, the vanguard of 21st-century theatre. The future. I hope so, anyway. Style. Content. Sharp, young minds. Ideas. An ingenious, superbly-constructed set. Stark lighting. Evocative, relative video art. All seamlessly integrated.” Review Crickey, May 28th 2010.
HOLE IN THE WALL is a highly sensory theatre experience that combines installation, animation, text and performance to explore ideas of domesticity, home and mortality.
The audience is split into 4 groups of 9 and enters small box-like rooms that moved on wheels around the theatre space, creating a claustrophobic and disorienting experience.
Hole in the Wall was developed through the Australia Council’s OYEA initiative and premiered in April/May 2010 with successful seasons at Campbelltown Arts Centre, Performance Space, and Next Wave Festival at Arts House.
Awarded Best Production Design for a Hybrid Work at Melbourne’s Green Room Awards 2010.
Premiered in May 2008 at Federation Square, Melbourne as part of the NEXT WAVE Festival and toured to Performance Space, Carriageworks, Sydney 2008, Campbelltown Arts Centre 2009,
