Telling Myths Telling Lies - at You Are Here 2017
A vibrant and playful exploration; a wax-lyrical improvisation; a discussion about Canberra mythology through the eyes of young people who live here. Performed by young and emerging artists as part talk-back radio and part live workshop, this semi-improvised performance goes haywire as both parties vie for control over the staging of the myth and its potential epic outcomes. Growing from an initial incarnation in Sydney as ‘Welcome to My World’ presented at Shopfront Arts Co-op and the MCA, this performance is also an experiment in transposing performed processes to a new community – for the community.
Language warning: this event contains some naughty words.
Please note that the performance on Sunday 9 April is a relaxed performance. This means audience members can come in and out of the theatre as needed. Further information will be provided very soon, however if you have any specific questions or requests for the relaxed performance please email firstname.lastname@example.org
All young people have something to say. And at Shopfront Arts Co-Op, we make sure their voices are heard.
Shopfront is a space where young people come together to express themselves. To learn, share and bring their imaginations to life. A space for celebrating the amazing ideas and creativity generated by young people and emerging artists.
We believe all young people have a right to expression – no matter their background or ability. That finding their voice and ensuring it is heard is crucial to them, as it is to Australia’s cultural landscape. This belief is intrinsic to the Shopfront process of creation.
As a youth-led arts co-operative, young people have a say in everything we do. Through Shopfront they gain invaluable skills in artistic leadership and community building, shaping and becoming the next generation of creative content makers and community leaders.
