INTERIM

In 2015 news broke in the Waterloo Housing community that residents would have to move from their homes, due to plans for development in the area. Three years later and these residents – some of whom have lived in the Estate for many years – have still received no certain information as to where they will be “relocated”, let alone when.

NATURAL ORDER

Who or what determines our lot in life? How do we get to where we are? Is it all a consequence of the choices we make? Or is it determined by something bigger than us … Fate? God? The Universe?

TURNING TOWERS

Change can be exciting, bringing fresh opportunities, but it can also be scary, especially when it could mean the relocation of your home or business.

THAT'S THE SPIRIT

What do you do when you feel like you're drowning? How do you explain to others that you've forgotten who you are?

FEAST - CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT

An incredible transfixing gaze unsettles us in our seats. We listen to testimonies of inequality and how the performers have negotiated the terrain of their lives.

WASTED
