Saviour – A Web Series
Everyone has demons to face. Not everyone survives them.
Saviour is a web series which follows the lives of five young adults, each struggling to cope with their own personal torments. The series will utilise movement and physical theatre performance elements in order to explore how mental health is influenced on a day to day basis. The story begins with an ambiguous tragic ending and then continues by jumping back to a week earlier where the protagonist’s lives are dissected. An emotional journey ensues as the circumstances leading up to a life cut short are pieced together.
Created by GradCo.Studio, this project will be directed by Adam Golledge (A Boy Like Me, The Frog and Toad) and will be starring Charlotte Day, Jake Ludlow, Jayden Muir, Josie Waller, and Simon Thomson.
The Flanno Trilogy
“This year has been non-stop for those of us working on what we’ve affectionately named “The Flanno Trilogy”. The first week of Sydney Fringe Festival last year saw audiences pour into the Emerging Artists Sharehouse to catch HANNAH, our Australian Bastardisation of Hamlet set in Western Sydney, and the feedback has been phenomenal. People commented on the performances, of course, but we also found we received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback about the colloquial script we wrote, the modern versions of the classic characters we created, and the way we pieced it all together. Overall it was a fantastic and rewarding experience, which reinforced our belief that our greatest strength as a company is devising work.
Since fringe GCS was awarded an artistic residency and given two weeks to create the second installment of the trilogy “The Market Man”, A contemporary Australian adaptation of The Merchant of Venice. The play, set once again in a low socio-economic area of Western Sydney, took a deep look at current racial tensions between white Australians and the Arab community.
The Final story is set to be written and developed later this year, with a showcase of the entire series to be stage early 2020
