See In Me
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?
See In Me
In 2011 RUCKUS developed a short performance piece, Love Heart Cardigan. This produciton was created in response to the tragic death of an elderly Surry Hills resident, Natalie Wood in 2003. Her death went unnoticed unnoticed for a staggering 8 years until her body was found in mid-2011. RUCKUS performed this production to a full house at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta.
In 2012/ 2013 through text, movement and video RUCKUS continued to explore what it is to feel invisible, isolated & alone and what we all do in our own lives to stay connected, visible & heard. The result was the highly acclaimed major production, See In Me which was performed in 2013 in front of sell out audiences also at Riverside Theatres.
Cast Nathan Basha, Chris Bunton, Gerard O’Dwyer, Audrey O’Connor, James Penny, Rachel Sugrim & Digby Webster.
