Coil – Ode to the Video Store

An elegy to the closure of the local video shop, Coil blurs the boundaries of theatre and cinema while drawing on our collective memories to pay tribute to the glory days of the video store and commemorate the communities we made within them. Brought to the stage by re:group performance collective, comprising artists based between Hobart, Wollongong and Sydney, the playful and timely live cinema experience explores the joys, perils and pitfalls of nostalgia.

Coil is a feature performance of the Sydney Opera House’s bi-annual UnWrapped season, which provides a platform for independent Australian artists and small-to-medium companies to showcase new, risk taking work spanning across dance, music, live art and theatre, rarely seen, yet critically acclaimed work.
