‘Undertow’ is an honest and powerful look at the hidden forces, beneath the surface that move us and determine the choices we make and the actions we take. Centering around a high school community, the show follows a group of individuals, from a range of backgrounds, all dealing with their own unique challenges.
Shock Therapy draw on a range of film conventions and physical theatre techniques to push their signature style in a new direction, blurring the line between different realities. The result is storytelling that is fluid and inventive, sweeping you up in its current as the story pulls you deeper.
Nominated for 3 Matilda Awards (2021) including Best New Australian Work, Best Independent Production and Best Sound Design (Guy Webster) this is an opportunity not to be missed.
This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
