Tickets are now on sale for SOCIETY, a new work from THEATRE OF SPEED
Posted 2 August 2018
Tickets are now on sale for SOCIETY, a new work from our experimental theatre lab, THEATRE OF SPEED, which will premiere in our Geelong studio this August.
SOCIETY is a show about a room and the people in it.
It is about categories. It is about queues.
It is about creating, destroying, and creating again.
It is about people having private conversations with each other. Bitching.
It is the ratings we give each other. It is about nothing.
It’s about a group of people figuring each other out. Creating rules to make sense of things, and then abandoning them.
SOCIETY is unexpected. Being scared is permitted
SOCIETY has been devised by Theatre of Speed, under the director of Artistic Associate Tamara Searle. It is a documentary theatre work comprised of several inter-connected scenes, all devised by Theatre of Speed (TOS) participants. Each scene explores groups; how they function, how they are created, the dynamics within them and the rules the govern them, through games and vignettes of social behaviour and ritual.
This is the first time since their SOLD OUT season of SUCKER in 2015 that THEATRE OF SPEED will present a new full length work.
SOCIETY opens on Wednesday 22 August with performances at 1pm and 7pm and continues through to August 25.
