White Trash/Medium Rare

Is Theatre Ltd.

LOCATION: CONTEMPORARY ART TASMANIA GALLERY

White Trash/Medium Rare was a collaborative project with Is Theatre Ltd. This performance asked what it is to be white and Anglo-Australian. The project developed a new work from scratch, involving considerable workshop and improvisational activity. The ‘set’ was an installation in the gallery for the duration of the performance period.

While this project produced mixed responses from certain elements of both traditional contemporary art and theatre audiences, the response of the more general audience was overwhelmingly favourable, as was the press theatre review.
