RUMOURS OF A RUINOUS WALL

PRODUCED BY GIPPSLAND REGIONAL ARTS FOR THE WATER WATER FESTIVAL

  • DIRECTOR: Jessica Wilson
  • CO-DIRECTOR / COLABORATOR: Eva Grunden
  • PRODUCER: Deb Milligan
  • COMPOSER: Lucas Michailidis
  • PARTICIPANTS: Young people from Wellington Shire

Rumours of a Ruinous Wall was presented by Gippsland Regional Arts Sale and developed over a year of workshops with participants from every secondary school in the Wellington Shire.  The free outdoor performance was created by over 150 young people and transformed the Arts Lawn at the Sale Entertainment Centre.

Ruinous Wall followed the story of a fictional society who live near a wall that will, one day, fall down. It explored our fears and dreams for the future - our responses, and our responsibility.  Rich visual imagery was created through gestural based physical performance, design and projected OHP animation in a theatre performance straight from the imagination of young people. 

The project as initiated by Gippsland Regional Arts in Sale and featured the Young Voices Community Choir.
