Arts Centre Melbourne and Chamber Made Opera present


Captives of the City


A Lemony S Puppet Theatre and Chamber Made Opera production.

Deep underground, something is stirring. Ideas are spreading and change is beckoning. The Captives have a choice - embrace the terrifying uncertainly of change or maintain the status quo. Captives of the City is a dynamic fusion of digital puppetry, live animation, music and performance, a new chamber opera that tackles fundamental questions of our time.

Captives of the City is a collaboration between independent company Lemony S Puppet Theatre and Chamber Made Opera and will be performed in a secret location in the depths of Arts Centre Melbourne.

Your experience begins at Curve Bar 15 mins before performance start time. Late arrivals cannot be admitted.

This event is a travelling performance taking place in elevators, backstage and other unusual locations. You will be required to climb 8 steps to access the main performance area. Please contact the Access Manager at the Arts Centre Melbourne on 9281 8503 if you require further information.


"[Chamber Made Opera] manifests its mission statement of re-inventing our bellowing, big-lunged impressions of what 'opera' can be."

About Lemony S's acclaimed work Apples and Ladders:

‘Show of the week... In every way, this is a small - though not minor - gem.
THE SUNDAY AGE

‘Apples and Ladders is an intelligent, moving and beautifully crafted show, a credit to its creators’
THE AGE


About Lemony S

Named after the first dog to go into space, Lemony S is the coming together of two widely respected and highly skilled puppet theatre makers, Sarah Kriegler and Jacob Williams. With over 20 years theatre experience between them, they use puppetry in to disarm the audience and go deep to the core of what it is to be human – to attach meaning to symbols and signs, to empathize and to access the innate human ability to “suspend one’s disbelief”. Based in Melbourne, their works have been seen throughout Australia and across the world. They are deeply excited to be working with the extraordinary team behind Captives of the City.

Their repertoire includes the critically acclaimed and Green Room Nominated Apples and Ladders , The Lichtenstein Nursing Home Massacre, One Night the Dog, Jesus Crisis, The Cautionary Tale of Barry Von Peabody and the Scarlet St Theatre and award winning Foxy’s House of Horrors.
