CTP Staff Member at the Helpmann Awards

DP_SS_2The Disappearances Project, an intimate theatre work co-directed by CTP staff member, Yana Taylor, in which she also performs, received a Helpmann Award nomination in the ‘Best Regional Touring Production’ category. This piece explores the effects of long-term missing persons cases on family members and communities. It traces the trajectories of hope in the shattered lives of those left behind over years of police investigations in a range of unexplained disappearances.  The Helpmann announcement follows rave reviews for the work at the Brighton Festival UK in May. This work was devised by a creative team from company version 1.0, including composer Paul Prestipino, performer-co-devisor, Irving Gregory, co-director David Williams, filmmaker Dan Jameison and cinematographer, Sean Bacon.
