SOME FILM MUSEUMS I HAVE KNOWN
Australian Center for the Moving Image, Next Wave Festival, Melbourne 2010.
Old Fitz Theatre, Imperial Panda Festival, Sydney 2011.
Welcome to The Barumpool Film Museum, a broken down tourist trap in a remote country town. It’s not about accuracy or even safety. It’s about getting to the rebirth you were promised when you first got on the minibus.
A darkly comic journey into the heart of cinematic obsession.
A lonely shut-in with a terrible screenplay, two twin brothers trapped in a VHS nightmare, a rickety ghost train, the birth of cinema and a haunted film museum hungry for souls. Pilfering elements of horror and fantasy, this wildly ambitious show utilizes holographic projections, intricate dioramas and tiny cameras within an ever-evolving DIY set to create an innovative and immersive theatre experience.
