APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR GOLD COAST LOCALS TO SCORE A FRONT-ROW SEAT AND PLAY HOST TO A GROUNDBREAKING CULTURAL EVENT
As Bleach* Festival prepares for a transformational year running in parallel with XXI Commonwealth Games, Gold Coast locals looking for a unique, access-all-areas experience are invited to open their homes and welcome festival-goers for a groundbreaking intimate experiential theatre event.
A highlight of Bleach* Festival 2018, Home Visit Gold Coast, by acclaimed Berlin-based theatre company Rimini Protokoll, offers every day locals the exclusive opportunity to host a remarkable living room performance that interweaves personal stories with the big issues affecting modern day Australians.
What is the Gold Coast actually? Is it a geographic border, a cultural identity, a sporting arena, a sunburnt holiday mecca? It has been said over and over that the Gold Coast is a transient tourism town, but exactly who are the half-a-million locals who call the GC home? In this extraordinary performance experience from acclaimed Berlin-based theatre company Rimini Protokoll, you’re invited to meet them.
Bleach* Festival Artistic Director Louise Bezzina said the unique performance piece is seeking a diverse pool of 10 local hosts from across the Gold Coast.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for locals to play host to Gold Coast’s most intriguing and intimate performance piece to date as we break social barriers and get people talking.”
“As we look forward to welcoming tens of thousands of visitors to the city in April, we’re on the hunt for hosts from diverse backgrounds who can provide a holistic and authentic Gold Coast experience.”
