The Sky is Well Designed presented by Darebin Arts' Speakeasy and Fabricated Rooms
Presented by Darebin Arts' Speakeasy and Fabricated Rooms as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival.

‘Just like Sputnik, global warming has stigmatised the sky: what used to be a moving star became a delivery system; what used to be the weather is now a vengeful climate.’ - From ‘Earth Sound Earth Signal’ by Douglas Kahn.

Two scientists venture out into the desert to play music to the earth's dying atmosphere. A work of quiet conversations and stunning sound, The Sky Is Well Designed is the second production from Fabricated Rooms (recipients of four Green Room Award nominations, 2015).

The Sky Is Well Designed examines the ways in which our relationship to transience and nature is shifting amidst the dual forces of digital existence and climate change. A collaboration between writer-director Patrick McCarthy and composer Robert Jordan, this project utilises hyper-realist performance and a live electronic score.

This project has been developed with the support of Chamber Made Opera through their Little Operations program; and by Creative Victoria and the VCA through a Professional Pathways Scholarship.

15/09/2017 - 28/09/2017
Too Ready Mirror presented by Darebin Arts' Speakeasy
Presented by Darebin Arts' Speakeasy and Jamaica Zuanetti as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival.

‘Do you know the rules? You must always follow the rules.’

Too Ready Mirror is about sex and power. It is about performing. It is about succumbing. It is about resisting.

Three overlapping worlds and four trapped women.
In 17th century London, Nell pleases audiences and the King to keep her place. In present day Melbourne, Ruby performs for camera clicks and the love of Mars. In the future, the Institution tells Lily and Alma to be good girls, to stay safe and never escape.
