Never known as sticklers for convention, having performed in offices, phone boxes, in trees, and even for 48 hours on a sandbar as the tide came in, The Farm are back with a new genre-defying dance theatre performance mash-up Throttle.
This time, they’re turning their attention to the much-loved but sadly disappearing drive-in movie theatre.
Commissioned by and premiering at Bleach* Festival this week, Throttle puts you in the driver’s seat as a dark and dangerous tale unfurls in and around an abandoned oval at night. You tune into the show soundtrack through your car radio and turn up your highbeams to catch the action.
It’s a b-grade horror spectacle you experience from the (relative) safety of your own car, but the story behind the creation of this ambitious new show is just as innovative.
