1927.


During my 2 day stop over in Sydney I was fortunate enough to catch The Animals & Children Took to the Streets at the Sydney Opera House. It was a mix of theatre, projection, and musical.
The show is a production of the British theatre group 1927, and the writing and craft is mind blowing. There're possibly 10 characters in the play, but only 3 actors. Using projections of animation and cardboard slots the actors were able to tell a dark, humourous tale. Even the ending is interactive.
On the plane to Sydney, I found out the play is moving to Melbourne tonight until the end of the month, playing at the CUB Malthouse.
You really should check it out.
