“There was an undercurrent, some other part of me pulling the strings.”
Three people fight three monsters that have intruded into their bedrooms. They call for help, and find that it comes from unexpected places. Facet is an original physical theatre film, born from the creative interpretations of three student-written monologues.
“Needs fill the room like balloons, jostling for space.”
Facet is an experiment in interweaving theatre devising and film processes. Rehearsals took place remotely through Zoom, under the direction of Reis Low and the mentorship of Suzie Hardgrave. Floor Work would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which this production was made possible; we acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation, and the Māori peoples who are the tangata whenua of Aotearoa. Sovereignty of so-called Australia and Aotearoa were never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and to all Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Māori peoples.
“The water becomes blocked unless a rock is moved.”
Watch Facet any time from 18 November – 20 December 2020, or join us for the Opening Night Launch Party! We will be welcoming Facet into the world with a watch party and a Q&A session with the cast and crew, so come and meet your friends online and help us celebrate the continued production of art in these challenging times.
