ONEFIVEZEROSEVEN

By Suzie Miller

Presented in association with Perth International Arts Festival

 

1507 is the medium number of 'things' owned by a teenager.

 

In 2012 BGTC interviewed over 500 young people and reflected their thoughts, feelings, hopes and anxieties in Driving Into Walls, a highly physical and ultimately moving theatrical production that has since toured Australia to critical acclaim. Shift to 2014 and the same creative team travel across our nation to deepen their investigation of teenage life.

 

ONEFIVEZEROSEVEN is the average number of breaths they take each hour, the average number of things they own and it is the number of emotional moments a young person has in a singular day. 

 

ONEFIVEZEROSEVEN explores how young people's identity and sense of belonging intermingles with their possessions, opening wide the door to their inner sanctum. In this visually striking work, Australian teenagers allow the audience a thought provoking view of everything they have and everything they hope for.

 

WARNING

This production examines exclusion, racism, consumerism, bullying, absent parents and contains drug references, sexuality, coarse language and most shockinly - kissing.
