Back to Back Theatre

There's a deal going down. Amongst the flurry of suits and seagulls across Customs House square, Gary and Steve are here to complete a transaction – and it's not going to plan. 

An ingenious theatrical gem, small metal objects unfolds amidst the pedestrian traffic against the backdrop of Circular Quay, its moments of intensity – unnoticed by passers by – are whispered right into your ears via a personal set of headphones.  

An ensemble of actors with intellectual disabilities broadens the possibilities of live performance under the direction of Bruce Gladwin. Presented by Geelong’s celebrated company, Back to Back Theatre, this award-winning production was a highlight of Sydney Festival’s 2007 program, going on to entrance audiences from New York to Tokyo, and Vienna to Hong Kong. Now, it’s back home.  

small metal objects explores the everyday treatment of the disabled, the unemployed or any outsiders dismissed as unproductive. Against the shifting backdrop of the city, this show tackles the uncomfortable questions our relentlessly paced urban community too often turns away from.
