Play: Earth Mumma: Dancing Around the Right
Written and produced by Students on Seven (SOS) and friends
A creation that uses puppets, mask, and voice work to depict their interpretation of environmental degradation and the various ways humans interact and, sometimes, harmonize with nature. This short performance is the result of a group of students who were looking to create a space where they could experiment with their voices and ideas using popular art and theatre.
Play: CIVIL:EYES:NATION : A culture jamming romp about contemporary issues....
A theatre and dance performance about the environment, media and globalization. Join us for a cultural exploration which captures the absurdity of contemporary life, a satiric look at life on the brink of disaster. In a fragmented world where youth buy into the logo-s of consumerism, join Professor E. O'Sullivan as he spins global visions.
A collaborative creation under the direction of Cynthia Grant, a feminist theatre director, educator and culture critic. Featuring Global educator Professor Edmund O'Sullivan as Dr.E-O. With Anna Chatterton, Freddy Garcia and students from Earl Haig Secondary School.
