2019 Program Highlights
Hundreds of selfies and thousands of clicks later. Still nothing.
We broke the internet. We broke our governments.
This world of chaos, pain and anguish can’t last forever, and all the technology in the world can’t fix it.
Maybe we need to try something else.
HOMEGROWN FESTIVAL + BACKBONE FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION
Battersea Arts Centre (BAC), London UK, April 2019
Homegrown Festival, held at BAC London, is a 4-week festival exploring visions of the future by young people, artists, community members and producers. The programme will include a range of artistic activities that are politically engaged, reflect the diversity of the UK, embrace emerging technologies, and that span a range of art-forms (including dance, music, film, spoken word, comedy, cabaret and visual arts).
A delegation of young artists and producers from Backbone will attend and participate in this festival at Battersea Arts Centre.
LA BOITE THEATRE, 2019 ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
In 2019, Backbone returns to the mothership, our artistic birth place - La Boite Theatre. We have moved out, grown up and are ready to expand our connection with La Boite, 32 years after we broke into becoming our own beast to create work together. Throughout the year we will create pathways together for young artists to extend and develop their practice.
Presented November 2019 in collaboration with La Boite Theatre, Jeffrey Tan and our local community.
We drive past houses and apartment buildings every day. Small boxes full of lives that make up our neighbourhoods, stories untold, lives lived in silence and distance from our footpaths. Ever wanted to step inside someone’s house and just see what is there?
Happening across 20 homes in the north and south side of Brisbane, OPEN HOMES is a way into our neighbours’ homes and hearts.
