Passenger is a theatre work which places its audience inside a moving suburban bus. A conversation is heard between two fellow passengers. As you gaze at the passing world outside, you will be seduced into an altered understanding of the environment around you.
Exploring relationships to screen media and how it influences interpretation of the world around you, Passenger frames Melbourne's Docklands as a filmic landscape. It is the frontier of a market-driven economy – and the perfect setting for a modern-day Western.
Performed by Beth Buchanan and Jim Russel. Devised by Jessica Wilson, Ian Pidd and Nicola Gunn and directed by Ian Pidd and Jessica Wilson, with text by Nicola Gunn. Composition by Tom Fitzgerald. Conceptual and devising input by Bec Reid, Jeff Blake and the performers.
