If These Walls Could Talk
Part of Circus Series series.
PRESENTED BY MELBOURNE FESTIVALTo live in a house is to paint it in memory: layer after layer, the outrageous and the everyday, inhabiting the walls as surely as any ghost.
An intricate mesh of slapstick theatre, astonishing circus skills and powerful storytelling, If These Walls Could Talk brings to life the stories inhabiting a single apartment – a place of birth and death, joy and despair, the mundane and the beautiful – as lived by five generations of tenants.
Bristling with humour, physical prowess and deep theatrical ambition, this is an affecting portrayal of life, mortality and the things we leave behind – an poignant new work from one of Australia’s foremost independent physical theatre companies.
“One of Australia’s leading indie ensembles… make a point of seeing anything you can by Dislocate.”
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its funding and advisory body, and the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria.
Supported by Circus Oz, The Substation and NICA. Originally produced as a work in progress season at the Seymour Centre as part of The Reginald Season, 2011.
