An intricate mesh of slapstick theatre, astonishing circus skills and powerful storytelling, Dislocate presents If These Walls Could Talk…? at Chapel Off Chapel from 17 August 2017 as part of the Glow Winter Arts Festival.
If These Walls Could Talk…? brings to life the stories inhabiting a single apartment – a place of birth and death, joy and despair, the mundane and the beautiful – as lived by six generations of tenants. To live in a house is to paint it in memory: layer after layer, the outrageous and the everyday, inhabiting the walls as surely as any ghost.
Nominated for a Helpmann Award for Best Visual or Physical Theatre in 2015, If These Walls Could Talk…? bristles with humour, physical prowess and deep theatrical ambition, this is an affecting portrayal of life, mortality and the things we leave behind – an astonishing, affecting new work from one of Australia’s foremost independent physical theatre companies.
Dislocate is an independent ensemble founded by Kate Fryer and Geoff Dunstan. They sought to establish a vehicle to create physical theatre that broke boundaries and was visually exciting. Their productions contain a mix of circus, satirical comedy, romance and movement and they have enthralled audiences around the world.
“…a depth of dramatic engagement that’s rare in circus.” – The Age
