Western Edge Youth Arts presents Waiting for Something Better, an original production written and performed by North Geelong Edge; a group of culturally diverse, young emerging artists from Geelong.
Dim and Gonzo are homeless and waiting at cross-roads, as the world heats up and the future seems increasingly doubtful.
A series of characters enter their world, bringing stories from the frontline of a world gone mad; a trader in rare animals who revels in the mass extinction, a soldier from a far-off war who has sold his soul to the devil and done things that cannot be imagined, a rapper who travels from place to place bringing fragments of joy into people’s lives.
They come and go again, leaving Dim and Gonzo to try and make sense of a senseless world.
Inspired by Beckett’s seminal work, Waiting for Godot, this new performance is a tragi-comic tale about love, hate and survival. Last year, the group performed their original comedy double-bill, Share House and 2K, to a full-house at Courthouse Youth Arts in Geelong.
It all goes down on Wednesday July 24 at 7pm at fOrt Youth Centre, Geelong. This one’s free too so no bookings necessary.
Proudly supported by the Victorian Government, City of Greater Geelong and Give Where You Live Foundation.
