Event Details

WE ARE THE GHOSTS OF THE FUTURE A visit with vanished Sydney is a one-hour immersive theatrical experience that unfolds across an 1858 warehouse in The Rocks.

On 13 November 1935 beloved aviator Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith, whose plane has disappeared days before, is announced missing, probably dead. 

Against the epic narrative of a vanished hero our story evolves: dramas playing out in the rooms of a 1930s 'boarding house'. While the residents mourn Smithy, they also deal with their own losses, loves and secrets. 

Audience members move freely around this historic building, witnessing these simultaneous private moments. Meet the war bride, the transvestite copper, the abortionist and others who inhabit a pre-war Sydney. Their forgotten lives have left traces if we pause to look, provoking the question of what we ourselves will leave behind, if anything, once history sweeps us away and Sydney transforms again.

This evocative production is driven by audience curiosity. The striking tableaux come alive in a different way with each performance, promising to always be a unique and intimate evening.

You are invited to wander from room to room, like ghosts of the future visiting an oblivious present. 

We Are The Ghosts of the Future is a fascinating and moving experience, an imaginative journey into Sydney’s rich past. 

This show is part of 2016 The Rocks Village Bizarre Festival.
