I Love Todd Sampson (redux)
... See MoreSee Less

In the reimagining of I Love Todd Sampson, The Living Room Theatre celebrates 15 years of work and survival with a collision of two of its most significant works Billie (2003) & I Love Todd Sampson (2013) I Love Todd Sampson (redux) is a theatrical experience which integrates architecture, sound, film, equine science and performance to expose the vulnerability of human nature. Laura is not doing too well - old friends are back to haunt her as she tries to hide from her past. During difficult years with her father, the young girl Billie constructed an alternative reality. She emerges as Laura, who is struggling with her life and trying to create a new reality. It is the voice of television identity Todd Sampson – co-creator of the Earth Hour initiative and commentator on Gruen & The Project – that brings comfort. As she lurches between her real and imagined lives, her past, present and uncertain future merge, until she discovers Sampson bathing in her tub. The cast includes Michelle St Anne as the protagonist Laura/Billie, a five year old Iberian horse Jazz, and his trainer Kate Fenner. Set within a circuitous environment created by architectural muse, Genevieve Lilley, the onlookers are woven into the journey as they follow Laura/Billie through the many spaces, alcoves and corridors of 107 Projects. Along the way the audience joins Kate & Jazz for tea and toast, before finding them both sitting quietly on a couch deep inside the venue. Something is not quite right...is it? “We all find comfort in different ways. There is no choice in who helps us. Life chooses for us.” Venue: 107 Projects, 107 Redfern Street, Redfern Preview: Tuesday 9 August | 7.30pm Season: Wed 10 August to Sunday 14 August, 2016 Time: 7.30pm Tickets: $30/$20 On sale now

The very last exhibition in our Campbell St space is the exceptional Kate O'Connor... come and join us for this fittingly personal exhibition as we say goodbye to our humble basement in Surry Hills. ... See MoreSee Less

Please join me to celebrate the opening of my first solo art exhibition. See Invite for details. ARTIST STATEMENT 'I paint to express thoughts, ideas and memories that belong to another place. A distant and at times a very close set of realities that do not belong to the here and now. Through living with manic depression for over 20 years, I continue to discover that my creative practice is not only an occupation, but an occupational therapy, and most importantly, a bridge between places in my mind and widely held perspectives of reality. I have shared an intimacy with many others with similar conditions. WHY DID YOU PAINT OVER ME? Is a body of work which endeavours to communicate my stories, and those of fellow patients and carers. A colourful poetic language which aims to challenge the way we look at, and talk about the human condition.'
