Curated by THE RABBLE

Since the beginning of time, the winter solstice has been marked by rituals of rebirth and renewal. Traditionally on the longest night of the year, cattle are slaughtered, wine is fermented and kings are sacrificed for the eternal feminine. In the bleak midwinter, THE RABBLE (Orlando, Frankenstein) will perform extreme acts of magic under the black sun.

Playing 16 – 18 June

THE RABBLE is an on-going conversation between its Artistic Directors: Kate Davis & Emma Valente about aesthetic, space, gender, theatre and representation. THE RABBLE is one of Australia’s leading avant-garde contemporary theatre companies and aims to centralize marginalized voices and ideas by boldly ignoring linear and dominant systems of representation. THE RABBLE re-imagine familiar text and stories through a surreal and feminist lens. Since 2006, THE RABBLE has created and produced eleven new works in Melbourne, Sydney, Tasmania and Brisbane.
