About About an Hour Series

Tomorrow’s Parties 

Powerful, poignant and at times delirious, two performers with no psychic credentials imagine a multitude of hypothetical futures in Tomorrow’s Parties, from the internationally acclaimed Forced Entertainment. In a compelling performance that looks forward to futures both possible and impossible, the duo compete in an escalating game of one-upmanship to deliver a thought-provoking survey of hopes, fears, surprises and inventions

Fell Fell Fallen 

Classically trained tightrope walker Sébastien Le Guen turns defying gravity into an art form, going toe to toe with eccentric electro-acoustic musician and long-time collaborator Jérôme Hoffman in a taut balancing act between masterful acrobatics and music. Deploying unusual instruments and a variety of outlandish props, the duo achieves a thrilling, one-of-a-kind symbiosis, in a show that is at times dangerous and at other times dangerously funny.

+51 Aviacion, San Boja 

Yudai Kamisato is one of the most exciting young voices in contemporary Japanese theatre, with his quirky and poetic portrayals of life in Japan. The intensely personal +51 Aviacíon, San Borja shifts between reportage and fiction, unfolding around places Kamisato has travelled, encountering Japanese immigrant communities who’ve built new lives in new locations. Kamisato freely mixes the mundane with the extraordinary in a work that is thoughtful, charming and theatrically inventive.

This is How We Die 

Christopher Brett Bailey’s stream of consciousness is delivered in a motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Bailey traverses tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence in a spiralling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose echoing Lenny Bruce, William Burroughs, beat poetry and B-movies.

In Between two 

In Between Two sees two cultures, two generations and two charismatic wordsmiths mix it up at a singular event, as Chinese-Australian MC and spoken word artist Joelistics (TZU) and Filipino-Dutch-Australian producer/songwriter James Mangohig (Sietta) take centre stage, combining spirited, personal storytelling with a rich, original soundtrack of acoustic and electronic music.

Double Blind 

Helpmann Award-winning choreographer Stephanie Lake debuts a stimulating new dance work inspired in part by real-world experiments in the conflict between personal ethics and obedience to authority. Featuring four world-class Australian dancers, this provocative work puts the dynamics of human interaction under the microscope with choreographic duality between highly detailed movement and anarchic spontaneity.
