The Inquisition of the Big Bad Wolf

A fun and quirky dance theatre production that unleashes the untamed inner wolf that hides within us all. Flipping ‘normal’ upside down, it swats at the relentlessly buzzing mosquito that is anxiety.

WOLF takes children fables, a bare rehearsal space, a microphone, crazy costumes, and a wild creative vision and turns them into a rollicking adventure that moves, amuses and agitates in turn. The fourth wall is broken and the audience come to realise they are participants on a roller-coaster of opposing tensions.

For this project, Prying Eye collaborate with 3 dancers, a dramaturge, sound designer, script advisor, lighting designer, and mental health experts to complete and showcase the full dance theatre production in 2018.

Prying Eye will unleash this beast in 2018 at Supercell Dance Festival in Brisbane in February, then with your help, also at:
– Adelaide Fringe Festival (March)
– Edinburgh Fringe Festival (August)
– Mental Health week Brisbane (October)

WOLF is a work of critical relevance. SANE Australia states that nearly half of the population in Australia will battle a mental health issue at some stage in their lives.

Queensland Alliance for Mental Health partners with Prying Eye to provide expert advice on the content of WOLF to create a distinctive, original work that upholds the integrity of important subject matter, delivering new creative avenue to invoke conversation and help dispel stigma surrounding anxiety.

Building future audience and touring capacity and thus greater financial sustainability for Prying Eye, presentation at multiple festivals in various geographical locations allows: presenters to see the work before they buy it; new audiences the chance to attend; and the work to grow through interaction with audience.

Funds raised here go towards:
– Travel and accommodation
– Set freight
– Fringe registration and venue fees
Whilst collaborating artists on this project will be paid according to equity rates, your funds will also enable Prying Eye who are co-directors/project coordinators/performers to receive partial payment for their work.

Free workshops will also be facilitated for youth through partnerships with the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts and Indooroopilly State High School.

Recognised for being highly connected within their sector and producing excellent work, Prying Eye are current recipients of the Sidney Myer/Tim Fairfax Capacity Building Program.
