What's On

The City

Connection can be found everywhere

With original composition, this world-premiere performance relies on soundscape and voiceover as the Actors inhabit the stage. Each depicting a multitude of characters in the cross-section of this Australian city.

We begin in the darkness of the early morning as the metropolis is stirring and beginning to come to life. A small number of Actors depict all the roles, creating an experience of connectedness to the land that we share and those with whom we coexist.

The City aspires to find the spiritual in the quotidian, the beautiful in the mundane, and highlight our mutuality, to combat the isolation many are feeling in the social media age. 

Presented by Oliver Wakelin and Christie Koppe.

The City is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
