something a little different ……..

An Invitation To Join Us In Some Politically Motivated Creativity

Tony Barry is a well-known Australian actor who has done us the honour of agreeing to be the Patron of the Drill Hall Theatre Company. Tony believes that Australian values, that can be simply summed up as “a fair go for all”, are being undermined by our current political situation and he is powerfully motivated to do what he can to work towards a change for the better. Tony believes that the role of the politically motivated artist is to shine a light on social issues in order to facilitate the discovery of solutions.

Along with other members of the Drill Hall Theatre Company Tony is sending out the following call to actors, performers, artists, musicians, film makers and all other creative activists:

  • Do you feel pissed off that greed and stupidity are calling the shots while being fuelled by political bastardry that results in an erosion of our values and the vandalising of the environment?
  • Do you want to join the search for alternatives through a creative collective of ideas and insights?

If you do then you might like to join us in the Drill Hall Theatre on Friday evening July 4 at 6pm and if you like what you see, then you might want to come for the ride over the next two evenings and contribute to a presentation, of sorts, on the evening of Sunday July 6. We guarantee you an experience of empowerment through play, serious play! Bring your favourite political cartoon, your concerns, ideas, wit, skills and your wisdom.

The conveners, Tony Barry, Greg Aitken and Michael Hennessy warmly welcome all serious players to become participating pranksters helping to suggest a more nourishing game to play.

We will be gathering at 6pm on Friday July 4 to workshop ideas; 5pm on Saturday July 5 to further develop those ideas; and 6pm on Sunday July 6 to review what we have come up with and where we might go from there. One of our primary goals will be to develop performance based ways to inform and empower others to express and share their political views.

The kitchen will be open and a gold coin donation towards costs would be welcome.
