Love Heart Cardigan
How can someone disappear like they never existed? How can someone lay dead in their home and not be found for 8 years? We assure ourselves by saying ‘this won’t happen to me’ but how can we be so sure that we too won’t fall between the cracks?
In 2011 RUCKUS developed a short performance piece, Love Heart Cardigan. This production was created in response to the tragic death of elderly Surry Hills resident Natalie Wood in 2003. Her death went unnoticed for a staggering 8 years until her body was found in mid-2011. RUCKUS explored the themes of going unnoticed, feeling invisible and disconnected. They drew on the personal & the imagined to create this unique performance. RUCKUS performed this production to a full house at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta.
