Phoenix Edge showed their new work-in-development, In the Light of Day, to an enthusiastic house at Phoenix Youth Hub on 10 June. There were some individual standout performances by this strong group of young theatre makers. But their work as an ensemble was the highlight under the talented leadership of their director/facilitator Georgia Symons.
After the performance, actors and directors asked for feedback from the audience, to inform the ongoing development of the work. One young audience member who was attending theatre for the first time in Australia said that he ‘liked the parallel stories that were happening at the same time’, and another enjoyed the ‘use of the ensemble as metaphors’. Check out the photos in our photo gallery.
In the Light of Day will be shown as a finished work, in late August. Keep your eyes peeled for more details.
