The Hungry Mile

For anyone who saw it, a highlight of the 2000 Olympics cultural program was the performance by Legs on the Wall abseiling down the side of the AMP Building to create an aerial performance about refugees and migration. In 2018 they will present a new work based on the Hungry Mile and Millers Point. They would like to share with the community some of the work while it is in our early stages of development.

THE HUNGRY MILE PROJECT

Friday 22 September
Harry Jensen Community Centre, 17 Argyle St, Millers Point
For an introduction to The Hungry Mile project & short performance.
2pm refreshments
3pm performance in the hall

THE HUNGRY MILE will be a site-specific physical theatre show created by Legs On The Wall performed in Millers Point, drawn from the stories of the community.

‘Told not from a theatre stage, but from the existing surfaces – inside and out – of some of Millers Point’s most beautiful, contentious and story-steeped architecture. With the old Bond Store as our centre point, Legs will defy expectations and gravity as we perform from the walls, homes, streets, lanes, rooftops, cliff drops, and construction sites in the heartland of the Millers Point community.’
