Momentous Event for Options Theatre Company
Options Theatre Company was invited to participate in the Australian National Museum’s MOMENTOUS Exhibition for International Day of People with Disability on 3 December, 2021.
The MOMENTOUS Exhibition focuses on the impact of the bushfires and the lockdowns from the perspective of people with disabilities.
Stuart Smith, Artistic Director, worked with the Options Theatre Company Crew to film, edit and produce a stunning Short Film titled, ‘REMOTE’.
The Short Film is an artistic depiction of life in lockdown from the perspective of our very own star, Nathan Parker.
A remote control becomes Nathan’s only companion in his current stop/start world.
The inclusive ensemble of creatives at Options Theatre Company reflect on finding hope in this uncertain time.
Featuring vocals from Andrew Sampford and Amy Vee, the original artists were Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush on the 1986 album, ”SO”.
We reached out to Peter Gabriel and sent him the video. He responded by saying he had watched the video and gave us permission to use the music on Social Media.
Peter also sent us this lovely message.
“Really enjoyed it – lots of cool ideas.
Great job! Thanks”
