1 Comment on ‘The Clock’ starts rehearsals

There are living things that do not age.

They exist,

of course,

like us,

in time.

The clock ticks.

But it doesn’t tick inside them like it ticks inside us.

Rehearsals start today for ‘The Clock‘. RiAus and ActNow Theatre are proud to present this new piece of interactive theatre, exploring the biological and social aspects of ageing.

The writing process officially started in January 2013, with creative development workshops with the actors in late January 2013. Performances will be in Mount Gambier, Goolwa and Port Augusta in May.

We’re super excited to keep you updated on this one. I’ll let eddie tell you a bit more about it.

This is the first project that was lined up for 2013. The partnership was brought about by two things; a TED Talk I did in 2010 which was hosted at RiAus, and a relationship which stemmed from a performance I did for Urban Myth as part of Science Week (about a decade ago!) where I met a woman who used to work for RiAus, and while I was with ActNow in its previous form, we had several “hey, we should do a show together” conversations, but for whatever reason it never advanced further. Until mid 2011, when RiAus approached me to do a new commission for regional areas, which eventually became set to “The Clock”. They were aware of Expect Respect, and we’re interested in that kind of interactive engagement with the audience.
