WOVEN Theatre 2019

Sound design for community theatre project WOVEN, Gasworks Arts Park, Melbourne

WOVEN is an interactive performance that links the audience, performers and the environment together to create a shared experience. A presentation of textured work, safe, inclusive, intuitive, interactive and sensory in nature. Based primarily on a locally inspired love story, the tale has evolved and taken from its roots into, a boarder universal context.
