Close to Home

2024 | The Round Studio (residency)

Close to Home is a contemporary visit to the zoo that immerses the audience in a curated space of transformation, philosophy, ecology, and possibility. 

Created by Kate Cameron and Olivia Staaf with a team of artists and ecologists, this work is the culmination of historical, physical, emotional, and scientific observations of animal behaviour and human storytelling.

Dry Land
        by Ruby Rae Spiegel

2024 | Theatre Works

Amy is a striking teenager with rough edges and harsh eyeliner. On the precipice of adulthood and with dreams of being a writer, Amy has the chance to make a future for herself beyond her infamous reputation at high school. But when she faces an unplanned pregnancy, Amy must seek help from her teammate Ester, an awkward but talented swimmer with as many secrets as Amy.

Dry Land by Ruby Rae Spiegel is an unflinching play about reproductive rights, the resilience and intimacy of young women, and what happens in a girls' change room after a high school swimming pool has closed.
