READY TO TOUR

A group of young girls all wearing read capes as part of the production of Tender Young Creatures

In this interactive re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood a chorus of up to 100 local girls aged 12-18 lead the audience through a nocturnal landscape. Moving through harmonies, melodies, monologues and chants, the 100 voices, led by original cast members, create forests and houses filled with the threat of the Wolf.

Inspired by ancient myths of the female heroine, SALT explores the fragility, certainty and strength of girls as they find themselves women.

Danielle O’Keefe’s award winning female ensemble swaddle the audience in haunting choral music. Through a synergy of moving bodies and an original choral score, SALT follows an emotional journey of female adolescence into womanhood. Performed and devised by The House ensemble of teenage girls, we witness them wrestle the ocean and emerge heroic.

Young women, siren-like, invite the audience into a salty, female, underwater world by way of a highly evocative 360 degree projection.

SALT 360 is the immersive film incarnation of Salt, surrounding the viewer in an underwater world of female adolescence.

SALT 360 can be presented in conjunction with a live performance of SALT.

Reverence is the result of a collaboration with Rose Riebl, the recipient of The 'House Commission of Female Composers 2022'.

Dawn. The wind whips through the empty city. The women emerge from their hiding places now that the fighting has stopped.

 

Over 9 choral movements, the traditional format of an operatic requiem, 3 female voices explore the harmony and dissonance of grief and womanhood.

We walk through a field of red capes. We might be in bushland, an old house, a gallery, or a stone courtyard. The capes float above and around us like so many invisible girls as we hear stories of women’s lives braided together with a stirring chorus of women’s voices.

Six award-winning Australian female composers knitted the stories from 100 women into a one-hour moving and poignant choral experience that is today known as 100 Women.

This epic choral piece can be performed by up to 100 women from your local community.
