“The Office of Dead Letters” by Heloise Wilson at the 2013 New York International Fringe Festival
“A piece of the sky fell and cracked my soul in half. “
Watch six quirky-clowny creatures bring dead letters to life; letters that may have been lost at sea, burned by deviants, never sent, only dreamed about or ripped apart – all with one thing in common: they never reached their intended.
With a mix of surreal physical theatre and realistic revelations of humanity you are sure to revel in this journey throughout history witnessing untold stories, heartfelt messages and ridiculous complaints. A metaphor for the collective unconscious of society.
“I am very homesick. I repeat, I am very homesick. This is the worst memory of my childhood.”

The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights, Little y Theatre Company and theMOXYcollective present
“Nothing in the Blue Room’s Summer Nights fringe-within-the Fringe season has been more intriguing than Public Space” The West Australian
"the Cultural Centre took on a cinematic quality, with passers-by like extras and your senses anticipating some untoward event." The West Australian
"stimulating" The West Australian
Public Space is an immersive interactive performance involving visual, sound, physical and textual moments that take the audience through the balmy early evening of the inner city urban hub, asking the audience to engage with their city in a new and unique way. Listen to the city so that we might tell you a story about the unexpected. A familiar car park seen in an unfamiliar way or whispers of sweet intimacies in a stairwell at dusk –you might want to watch out for clues along the path while questioning whether everyone in view might be a performer and the cityscape might be their stage.
Interaction is required and openness desired, so be prepared to become familiar with your Public Space.
Facilitated and directed by Renee Newman-Storen
