Our very own Bleach* Festival has been recognised as the best in the country, taking home the win for the Best Visual or Physical Theatre Production at the 18th Annual Helpmann Awards for the production of TIDE.
Together with contemporary dance company, The Farm, Bleach* were the recipients of the only Queensland nomination and first ever Helpmann Award for the Gold Coast at the ceremony in July at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre.
The 49 hour performance saw two office workers carrying out their duties in an office built on Currumbin’s sandbar. During low tide, they stood safely on sand, but as the tide rose, water submerged the desk and its contents. For 49 hours, without food or supplies, these two fearless performers put themselves at the mercy of both the tide and the compassion of the community.
Congratulations to all those involved in this fantastic achievement.
Bleach* Festival will return to the Gold Coast from 17 - 28 April 2019.
