AT THE HIP
by ROSLYN OADES & the HOTHOUSE STUDIO ENSEMBLE
HOTHOUSE PREMIERE: 3-9 November, 2016
In the years before his dramatic dismissal in 1975, Gough Whitlam had a dream for Albury-Wodonga. He envisioned a national growth centre to rival Canberra, with a booming population of 300,000.
In 2016, the HotHouse Studio Ensemble unearth the legacy of this grand, abandoned vision, by digging into the past, interrogating the present and imagining the future. After months of interviewing dozens of locals they are ready to report back. At the Hip is a celebration of Albury-Wodonga, and the hopes and dreams of its people. Using Roslyn Oades’ ground-breaking audio technique, our Studio Ensemble actors channel the real-life voices of local residents: born and bred, young and old, and newly arrived. Yes Albury-Wodonga, it’s time to hear your stories, and sing your songs!
