What do you turn to for comfort, and what happens when you can’t get that thing?
SOLACE is a stunning new production by Milk Crate Theatre and Box of Birds / Stalker Theatre that excavates the psychological and physiological impulses behind the pursuit of comfort. Why do we crave what we crave? What are we seeking comfort from? Are we are trying to avoid being alone with ourselves? Or do we just need a break from an increasingly complex and pressurised world?
Comprising text, movement and sound, interwoven with interactive digital projection, SOLACE rides the rugged terrain of the craving that underscores our lives, with humour and irreverence, darkness and light.
Do not miss this bold new work by two of Australia’s leading arts organisations in the fields of inclusive performance made by, with and for people with lived experience of homelessness, mental health issues and disability (Milk Crate Theatre), and large scale, interactive digital projection and physical theatre (Box of Birds / Stalker Theatre)
