HOLE IN THE WALL
with Clare Britton
HOLE IN THE WALL was a highly sensory theatre experience that combined installation, animation, text and performance to explore ideas of domesticity, home, mortality and love.
The audience was split into 4 groups of 9 and entered 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.
Artists: Matt Prest, Clare Britton, Danny Egger, Hallie Shellam, James Brown, Halcyon Macleod, Jenn Blake, Alistair Nicol, Peter Allott.
Premiered in May 2008 at Federation Square, Melbourne as part of the NEXT WAVE Festival.
Toured to Performance Space, Carriageworks, Sydney 2008, Campbelltown Arts Centre 2009, Darwin Festival 2010 and Perth Institute of Contemporary Art 2010.
