Drama project a real horror show
Wednesday, 25th August, 2010
"At The Drive In", a zombie-filled art project that involves local young people and their Sydney counterparts, will be performed next month.
Sydney arts group Shopfront have joined forces with West Darling Arts to hold the event.
Young people are being invited to create music, drama and film pieces that show a world where a virus has started turning people into zombies.
The project aims to help young people dramatise and examine times when they've felt like zombies, aliens or outsiders.
Shopfront's Outreach Officer Sarah Emery has already visited Broken Hill and worked with some young locals through the Cornerstone drama group, Broken Hill Youth College and the Alma and Wilcannia Public Schools.
She's keen to hear from others, and everyone aged between 12 and 25 is invited to get involved.
Artworks created by the youngsters will be assemble and displayed both in Sydney and in Broken Hill. Shopfront will bring about 10 young metropolitan participants for the local shows, which will be held at the Living Desert in September.
The two "At The Drive In" performances will be held at 7.30pm on September 10 and 11. The whole thing will be set up as if it exists within the world being explored, and will include the dance, film and musical pieces that have been created.
