13 - 17 September

Richard Wherrett Studio, Roslyn Packer Theatre Walsh Bay

“ Each performance was heartfelt, sensitive and rich in it's own way.”

DAVID KARY - SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE

“The fragility of human connection, our hopes, dreams and regrets are conveyed through the unity of design and performance”

KATE GAUL - THEATRE TRAVELS

Part Kafka, part ten deep breaths, entrancing, encompassing and intimate - Milk Crate Theatre's new performance work DUST kicks up themes of perception, deception and the longing to escape.

A group of individuals find themselves trapped in a country motel during a dust storm, seemingly blown in by the arrival of a self-professed travelling sage.

As they are forced to share space, each person finds themselves at a point of reckoning with their own sense of purpose. Old wounds are exposed, deceptions uncovered, and new dreams nervously announced - the charlatan taking unashamed pleasure in provoking his fellow prisoners in this veritable cave.

How do you know what you know? What is the truth anyway? Do you know what else is out there?!

DUST is an intimate and immersive experience of theatre, movement, lighting and sound, with nods to Outback Noir, the teachings of Plato, Surrealism, and The Breakfast Club.
