State of Emergency
As environmental and political events collide, a state of emergency is nigh. But who is prepared for rescue missions and basic survival? If all you have in your kit is gaffa tape, a holey tarp and a crate! Dance performers collaborate with SES Marrickville volunteers in a creative response to disaster. Through humour and invention, the performers experiment with ways of coming together to form support networks and find creative solutions for the future.
Devised performance by Gideon Payten-Griffiths, Paul Walker and Alana Yee
Costumes by Lian Loke, Bron Turnbull and Annie Winter
Electronic head dress by Anz Easaw and Abhiruchi Chhikara
