RED VELVET EVENING
Scotland – In development with Ross Mackay and his award winning company of nuanced puppeteers and visual storytelling, Ross Mackay and Suzie Miller are creating a festival work for 12 audience members at a time whereby they are taken back in time to a Victorian séance conducted for a jury on a murder trial. The work is supported by the National Theatre of Scotland who invited the artists to a residency in Glasgow Scotland – Cove Park – where the artists spent a week creating ideas and incorporated MacKay’s experience as a magician to develop scenes and an exciting concept for the piece.

In development right now is the exciting 2 actor work based on interrogation in its many forms – self, relationship, reason for being here, lifestyle, secrets and right up to a terrifying overseas customs interrogation.
Set over 2 spaces simultaneously choreographer/director/ performer Danielle Micah accompanied by Humphrey Bower, with the assistance of Kate Champion of Force Majeure, and written by Suzie Miller are creating a work which will interact with projection, sound and a specific space using text in imaginative ways to create a unique festival piece. Co produced with Western Australian Performing Lines this exciting show will premier at the WA State Theatre in 2014.
Co production with Night Parrot to create a unique work that combines live performance with extraordinary projections over large building sites in major cities.

Which characters are live and which are larger than life?
