HotHouse Company Needs You!
You’re invited to take part in a film with BACK TO BACK THEATRE in celebration of our diverse All Saints’ College community

HotHouse Company invites All Saints’ College students, staff, Old Saints, families and friends to participate in an exciting project with award-winning Australian theatre company Back to Back Theatre.

Back to Back Theatre’s The Democratic Set has toured the world for nine years starring hundreds of community members and, in 2019, All Saints’ College is privileged to be the first school to participate in this project.

The Democratic Set is a residency model for creating short films and performances, to explore the belief that all people are, in principle, equal and should enjoy social, political and economic rights and opportunities. The Democratic Set uses a custom-made film set, a neutral room with two opposing doors.

Disturbingly obvious and tantalisingly strange, The Democratic Set is a rapid series of short live performances and screen-based video portraits created in collaboration with communities.
Participants may take part as individuals or in groups (2–15) to create their 15-second performance!

  • Current students, staff, family members, Old Saints, partner organisations and collaborators of all ages are welcome.
  • The performances can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. Past scenes have included a child sleeping and an entire family dressed as bees. You may want to play an instrument, do karate, sing a song, read a poem, run a Science experiment or dance – the options are endless.
  • No performance experience is necessary.

The film below includes footage of 15 Democratic Set residences and was screened at the 2015 PQAU Exhibition, as part of the Prague Quadrennial, 18 – 28 June 2015. To learn more about Back to Back, please visit: https://backtobacktheatre.com/
