Open House #4: RIOT ACT by Chris Goode and Company

  • Mon 25 -Thurs 28 May 10.30am-7pm, Fri 29 May 10.30am-6pm, Performance / zine launch Fri 29 May 7.45pm

Open House is not a show. It’s an invitation.

Chris Goode & Company launched its Open House format in 2011. The way it works is simple. A core group of CG&Co artists walks into a theatre on a Monday morning, to start a process from scratch – with nothing but themselves and maybe a few unformed ideas to jump off from. 

During the course of the week, they work together with whoever wants to join in, to make a performance that the assembled company shares with an audience on the Friday evening.

I, Myself and Me by Rachael Young

  • Wed 27 May – Sat 30 May, 7:45pm
