Street Talk

Diversity Arts Australia’s Glazia Perez talks about Stories from the Future and the recent ACT workshop with culturally diverse creatives and arts workers at The Street. “The ACT doesn’t diverge far from the national perspectives, but each state brings their own focus and the ACT was especially focused on advocating for sustainable support systems for artists and united approach to creating change with other artists.”

“Inspired By" Double Bill
‘EPIC’ Directed by Nick Byrne (Australia) + ‘Austen & Such’ Directed by Charlotte Gittins (United Kingdom)

A blockbuster night of spontaneous theatre inspired by genres of performance.

Firstly ‘EPIC’, a performance inspired by Homer and Classical Greek theatre, a large cast will perform as Chorus, Muse, and Actors, in a flowing form that is boldly physical, verbally poetic, and thematically EPIC. Featuring serious percussion accompaniment by The Gary France.

And after interval….

An audience favourite, for sure, ‘Austen & Such’, is surely inspired by Jane Austen, with maybe a little Downton Abbey and Poldark on the side. We’ll see. What we do know, is that international guest director, Charlotte Gittins, is a part of what is widely regarded as the world’s premier improvised Austen company; UK’s ‘Austentatious’, and that means the most heartwarmingly polite performance you’ll see, this year…… period.

Part of Improvention 2017; an international festival of unscripted theatre arts, with performers and directors from Sweden, France, Argentina, Slovenia, Japan, Finland, United Kingdom & Australia
