Elegy for Australia’s lost video shops, blurring the boundaries of theatre, film and ceremony. Clever technology allows a single performer to act in place of an entire film cast. Microwave popcorn not included.

A must-see live cinema event…miraculously manufactured before our eyes by a mere trio of maker-performers. RealTime Arts
Nostalgic, philosophical and comedic…it’s quite unlike any other use of cameras and screens I’ve seen on a stage. Sydney Morning Herald
RE:GROUP PERFORMANCE COLLECTIVE
re:group performance collective are a group of artists based in Hobart, Wollongong and Sydney, Australia. Inspired by the highs and lows of pop culture, they mash theatre and film together to create live cinema performances. The aim of their work is to turn the typically comfortable, nostalgic and passive movie-going experience into something immersive, irreverent, sweaty and live, and ironic and sincere in equal measure.
