What do you get when you bring three groups of homeless and otherwise marginalized people from across Sydney together to create a show about the entire history and future of the universe by asking them the simple question "What was here in the past, and will be here in the future?"
No, it's not a joke; but it is funny. It's Milk Crate Theatre's latest show The Things That Are Left Behind.
For the last few weeks, I've been working with these amazing people to create a show about everything, from nothing. Nothing is the surest of places to begin. In this show we colour in the nothing with live performance story-telling combined with digital animation; all created from scratch by street-wise folk.
After the performance will be a Q&A about how we worked together to unlock our collective creative geniuses.
I'm in it, and it's free. Bargain. So if you want to see theatre like you've never seen before, come along. There are only two shows both this week:
- Tuesday 25th June at Information & Cultural Exchange at 8 Victoria Road, Parramatta: Click here for the Parramatta Facebook event.
- Wednesday 26th June at The Wayside Chapel at 29 Hughes Street, Potts Point: Click here for the Potts Point Facebook event.
Bring your friends; and what the heck, bring your enemies too. It'll be fun!
