    • re:group performance collective

Bub is 11-years old and obsessed with documentary filmmaking. In the aftermath of her family breakdown, Bub turns to dramatised re-enactments to get to the truth.

A kid with a camera. Two adults. No rehearsal.

Each night of the season, a young performer works with two unrehearsed adult actors for the first time. As Bub guides them to re-enact her personal experiences, these brave (or foolhardy) performers discover the story on the night, negotiating difficult questions about parenting, agency, mental health and how we speak to children.

POV is the latest experiment in onstage filmmaking from re:group performance collective. After indie flick (Coil) and sci-fi (UFO), this is re:group’s version of documentary—playful, urgent and live.

This project has been supported by a residency at Theatre and Performance Studies, University of Sydney, as well as by PACT Centre for Emerging Artists and Shopfront Arts Co-op.

A post show Artist Talk/Q&A will be held on Tuesday, 4th June. 

Audio Described show on Thursday 13th June delivered by Steve Wilson-Alexander

Auslan show on Saturday 15th June at 7:45pm delivered by Jennifer Maclaughlan and Will Tapp

…a perfect example of why re:group is one of the most interesting theatre groups operating in Australia today

Nostalgic, philosophical and comedic…it’s quite unlike any other use of cameras and screens I’ve seen on a stage
