This is the best type of theatre, one that challenges, evokes, engages and makes you sit up and pay attention. AUSTRALIAN STAGE (ON DRIVING INTO WALLS)
In 2012 Barking Gecko Theatre Company interviewed over 500 young people and reflected their thoughts, feelings, hopes and anxieties in Driving Into Walls, a highly physical and ultimately moving theatrical production that has since toured Australia to critical acclaim.
Shift 2014 and the same creative team travel across our nation to deepen their investigation of teenage life. This fast developing generation of Australians are about to tell us, in starkly honest and revealing confessions, what really lies in their hearts and minds. ONEFIVEZEROSEVEN is the average number of breaths they take each hour, the average number of things they own, and it is the number of emotional moments a young person has in one singular day. In this visually striking work, Australian teenagers allow you a rare and thought-provoking view of everything they have, and everything they hope for.
