Fat Boy Dancing and we do not unhappen present
The Light BoxBy Natalia Savvides

107 Projects, Redfern
10 – 28 July, 2013

What is The Light Box?

The Light Box by Natalia Savvides is a free-wheeling epic that links a fractured family to a bizarre world of talking birds and spoons in lab coats. Director James Dalton will lead audiences on an expedition through this poetic landscape of light, shadow, music, feathers and enough spoons to make Alanis Morissette cry.


Here are some things it has done so far:


March 2011: Developed through Bambina Borracha Productions.


September 2011: Developed through Playwriting Australia’s Re-Gen program.


March 27, 2012: Graphic reading at Jurassic Lounge, Sydney


June 9, 2012: Graphic reading at Sydney Film Festival Hub, Sydney.




Here is something it is going to do soon (with your support):


July 2013: A full length, wild and surreal. multi-sensory theatre experience at Redfern's 107 Projects.



What we need to make it happen:

An amorous toucan, a man made of spoons, a cruise ship on the Panama Canal, a jungle, a taxidermy shop… The world of The Light Box is wild and ambitious. Our budget for this project is $10 000 and through Pozible we hope to raise $2000. This money will help bring Natalia’s surreal and multi-sensory world to the stage, contributing towards the following production costs:

-The construction of Dylan Tonkin’s exquisite birds which will be suspended in the theatre (cost = $700)
-The purchase or rental of vinyl flooring to transform 107 Projects into a canvas ideal for light and shadow play (cost = $850)
-Purchase of the materials and the construction of the Toucan and Spoons costumes. This will require over 500 spoons (cost = $300)
-Consumables – we need lots of eggs, wee (fake), blood (fake), spoons, paint and feathers. (cost = $150 )
