Public Performances – 28 & 29 Nov 2009

What stories has the Carlton Courthouse heard in it’s lifetime?

Let’s add some more.

This weekend we invite our audiences to have their own stories heard and brought to life in this beautiful theatre.

We hope you’ll join us as we continue the conversation here. Use this space to share your thoughts, describe your experience and discuss the show with other members of the audience and the ensemble.

    Intimate & engaging. Stories are what connect us to each other I think. Hearing elements in other people's stories that resonate with your own makes you feel somehow not alone, and then those stories different to your own expand your heart and embrace more of the human experience.

    I liked the "survival adventure in Tasmania" story most. Glimpsing the lives of others – fascinating.

    Fantastic, really surprising & interesting. I liked the autobiographical bit by the actors & the stories bit. Actors were amazing at capturing stories – very poignant.

    I’ve seen your show yesterday at old courthouse.
    People told their stories to all of us and then watched their story being replayed by actors.
    It is very powerful way to reflect on significant bits of our life.
    As show progressed I formed my own story sorting out essence of past year of my life.
    I found how events of that time transformed me from how I was before to how I’m today.
    I found unexpected great significance of that events.
    Back at home, my friend who told her story there, shared with me her thoughts how powerful experience was to tell and be listen to and see how her story was played.
    Thanks for that, it is art at its best.
    I hope to be part of it again one day.
    Cheers, marecki

    The performances – all of them were great. The political story was so well done – I was worried by how it would be dealt with but you guys did a great job.
