ETC: Experiments in Theatre and Cinema

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 08 December 2021
Category Live Event

Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta presents

Cinema is dead.

A projection of the past…  put into a rectangular coffin-frame… watched by a passive audience in the dark.

But what if cinema came alive?

Etc. is a series of short multimedia experiments, designed to play with our notions of what cinema, performance and audience can be.

Etc. wants to wake the audience.

Etc. wants to break the frame.

Etc. wants to shake things up!

These playful and provocative new experiments are created by the award-winning Synarcade Audio-Visuals and directed by Mark Bolotin.

Two proof-of-concept sessions will be held at 1pm and 8pm on the 8 December 2021. This is a work in development – please join us for a Q&A session after the show.

Suitable for ages 16+
