A series of exhilarating performances will storm the concrete jungle with a high voltage site-specific exploration using drama, dance, acrobatics, film, music and design
Directed by Wendy Preston with an inter-disciplinary creative team of leading artists including Moss Patterson, Chris Graham, Mike Baker, Peter Hobbs, up and coming film team Votre Arme and designer Jessika Verryt
Crossroads features 30 young performers from a diverse range of refugee, migrant and local communities. The multi-cultural cast come from; Burundi, Congo, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Fiji, NZ, Palestine, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania and Tonga. As the young performers soar through the Silo’s city space, they will bring to life their personal stories of journeys, boundaries crossed and new territories entered. Imaginative and powerful young voices - expressed with creativity, courage, humour and celebration
In the four days leading up to the weekend event the process of completing the performance on the Silo Park site will be open to public view
Housed within the former industrial territory of the Silo interiors will be an innovative sound, film and photographic installation exploring the underlining performance themes while also offering a window into the Mixit Project. This installation will run throughout the weekend in-between performance events
Mixit is an inspirational multicultural youth project that uses the arts as a platform for empowerment, connection and for young people with refugee backgrounds to ‘mix it’ with migrant and local youth.
