The Echo in our Walls

The Echo in Our Walls is a project I worked on with Outback Theatre for Young People over 2014-2016. This show used the historic house and garden of Bishop’s Lodge in Hay as the venue and inspiration for a promenade theatre piece. Young people from Hay and Booligal in South Western NSW undertook a creative development process that included workshops on family history, devising work, drama process activities, shadow puppetry and more, in consultation with the community and artistic team. I worked as Artistic Director of this project, alongside Director Lara Kerestes, Sound Designer and Composer Vic McEwan and Wiradjuri Advisor Ray Splinta Woods.

Project dates:

  • Consultation Stage: October 2014
  • Development Stage: September-October 2015
  • Production Stage: February- April 2016
