How I Wish the Wish I Wish

Presented in association with the Castlemaine State Festival

Desire, love and heartbreak, disillusionment and hope — all these and more are captured in the timeless songs of Jacques Brel, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. Now these songs will form the basis of performances by international and local artists, brought together by Black Hole Theatre and Castlemaine State Festival in this Slam Noir event How I Wish The Wish I Wish.

Each artist will interpret a song using various forms of puppetry — shadows, objects, rod puppets, hands, and maybe a glove or two. Lit only by torches held by the audience and accompanied by live music, moving from tabletops to walls around the space, the artists will explore songs as story, poem, metaphor, emotion, and memory. Light up your night and expect the extraordinary.

Continuing its series of Slam Noir events, Black Hole Theatre has assembled an outstanding group of artists for this evening, including Stephane Georis (Belgium), Annie Forbes, Tim Denton, Michelle Heaven, Rachael Wenona Guy, the indirect Object (Beth McMahon, Mike Bevitt,), Ken Evans and Rebecca Russell, Lachlan Plain, Alison Richards and Eliza Jane Gilchrist and Mark Penzak. The MC was the wonderful Dan Oldaker, with music direction from Cerise Howard and live music from Dirty Nicola and the Spud Hussies.
