Intersection was a collision of epic Greek tragedy, interactive dialogue and city tour of homeless hotspots. It explored the crossroads in life, the moments where life changes course, described through the intersection between two people - James and Sally - who meet one night at a crisis shelter. How do two people with such varied personal histories find themselves located in close proximity - it's an affective combination of self-pride, self-disclosure and the pursuit of happiness.
Intersection was a site-specific show that moved across three sites. Built from a collection of stories gathered from individuals at homeless shelters over a three year period, it featured a team of professional actors and artists working alongside 30 participants who had experienced homelessness or disadvantage, and the Sydney Street Choir as the chorus.
