The Frock

  • Peacock Theatre 71 Salamanca Place Hobart, TAS, 7000 Australia (map)

In a unique meeting of the traditional and the technological, two of Australia’s foremost dance creatives, Graeme Murphy AO and Janet Vernon AM collaborate with Tasmania’s Mature Artist Dance Experience (MADE) to bring to the stage a dance theatre work like no other.

Spoken word, song, soundscape, installation, costume and machine are used to create an innovative theatrical experience that embroiders together a tale inspired by photographs from ensemble members in their “best dress”. The Frock is a patchwork of personal recollection and aspiration that expands on ideas of how Australians lived, have loved, why they dance and what makes their hearts sing.
