Festival Extra

RAWspace

 

Theatre that is fresh, unprocessed, raw and satisfying.

Following the extraordinary success of the RAWspace program in 2015, The Theatre Royal, Tasmania Performs and Ten Days on the Island again join forces to nurture and release a series of fledgling works by talented Tasmanian theatre makers. They get encouragement, a stage and the chance to fly.

Be their audience and see what happens. It could be the start of something big.

 

Brittle

Lead artist Glen Murray

Brittle is a solo movement based theatre work by a mature male dancer, a work that is strong, confronting and challenging. A work that will evoke powerful emotional responses.

 

Lipstick

By Zeb Direen

A man wearing lipstick? What a taboo! Lipstick is a journey of self discovery by an aspiring performer as they audition, work, and socialise while working out where they fit in a world where gender plays a crucial role – from hitting high C as the star of the show, to the shots we drink, and of course the socks we wear everyday.

 

The Love Project

Directed by Essie Kruckemeyer

Composed by Heath Brown

The Love Project is a dance theatre work that explores the extraordinary and ordinariness of love, told through a collage of interviews, emotive music and movement by a small ensemble.

 

Contested Land

Directed by Charlie Smith and performed by Second Echo Ensemble

Contested Land is an immersive exploration of our sense of connection to the land and what it means to take, give, share and fight over contested lands.
