Past Season


By Daisy Brown [The Misery Children]


GORGE ‘09 is a bold and interactive mini-fest of performance and spoken word – and it’s not for the jelly-hearted.

Each night offers a new theatrical world, Different writer. Different script. Different performers.

It’s raw, it’s immediate and dramatically different. Live dangerously and immerse yourself in the process of making live performance.

Writers Nicki Bloom, Matthew Cormack and Alirio Zavarce have each penned a ten minute script, commissioned especially for GORGE ’09, and are now waiting to see what is served up between 19-21 November by the GORGE ’09 performance companies and artists: Daniel Clarke, Aidan Munn, Stone/Castro, Real Time Collaborators, TheimaGen and Unreasonable Adults.

GORGE ’09 isn’t one of those theatrical experiences where you sit back and wait to be entertained. You have to engage and enGORGE!

GORGE ’09 is loud and gets louder. Your voice is vital to the fun and laughter each night as you are serenaded by the sassy songbird, Libby O’Donovan, mellifluous Mistress of Ceremonies. 

And, yes, it’s more fun if you come on all 3 nights…

You’ll meet the artists, engage in conversation with them and watch the stage transform again and again in a series of different interpretations. We’ll open up the floor to questions and debate, challenge the writers’ intention and question the performers’ interpretation. Or simply sing their praises!
