Blancmange and 7-On will present the new immersive performance, We Are The Ghosts Of The Future, as part of The Rocks Village Bizarre.
The drama will unfold in an 1858 sandstone warehouse in The Rocks, with audience members invited to wander freely through the building as fourteen performers and a musician transport them to another world.
The story takes place on a day in November, 1935 – the same day it so happens that beloved aviator Charles Kingsford-Smith was pronounced ‘missing’ when his plane vanished flying from London to Sydney.
Set throughout a 1930s boarding house, the lodgers mourn the disappearance of a national hero while also dealing with their own losses, loves and secrets. They include a war bride, a backroom abortionist, a child who idolises Kingsford-Smith, and other inhabitants of pre-war Sydney.
These people’s lives may now be forgotten but they have left faint traces, provoking the question: What will we leave behind, if anything, once history sweeps us away and Sydney transforms yet again?
We Are The Ghosts Of The Future will open on 13th November 2015, exactly 80 years since Charles Kingsford-Smith was declared missing.
An intriguing and moving experience, We Are The Ghosts Of The Future will be an imaginative journey into Sydney’s rich past!
