Our Premiere Season of Manfred Karge’s CONQUEST OF THE SOUTH POLE was funded by the Australia Council to tour Q Theatre and Labour Market Programs throughout Greater Sydney. Two and a half thousand traditional non-theatre goers attended these performances with their tickets paid as part of their support coping with long term unemployment.
The Company focused on a Narrative Style of Theatre that combined Storytelling with Live Action to produce our own adaptations of Voltaire’s CANDIDE at Belvoir Street as well as LOVE AND FIDELITY – Five French Love Stories by Guy de Maupassant at Logues Restaurant.
Our adaptation of John Marsden’s First Novel
SO MUCH TO TELL YOU toured theatres in Greater Sydney and then New South Wales and Victoria for Young Australia Workshop.
A tender portrayal of two women trying to start again.
On her release from prison, Lorraine heads straight to Marie’s.
On the inside they used to share everything
but the friendship that once protected them
now threatens to smother the fragile freedom they have found.
THIS WIDE NIGHT explores the importance and uniqueness of relationships formed in prison: how they can, or perhaps cannot exist in another context;
and resettlement where ‘freedom’ can actually feel like a very bleak and frightening concept.
Playwright – Chloe Moss
A Moveable Theatre performed for 3 years for the Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Programme and for 5 Years, we were Resident Children’s Theatre Company at the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney.
When Producing Theatre for Young People our Primary Aims are:
That it incorporates the Environmentin which it is set.
That it involves the audience, transporting them into the world of the story and giving them an active role in bringing about it’s outcome.
That it excites them to revisit both the Environment and the Text with a sense of Fun and Personal Ownership.
