Behind the Public Eye

Set in one of Melbourne’s oldest underground toilets, this performance installation presents vignettes and other installed moments of womens’ use of the public convenience. The audience is split into two groups, one of which enters the underground female toilets while the other group remain outside with an invitation to have a private moment in the mens’ underground toilets. In the womens’ toilets the audience are free to wander the toilet block. Some of the doors are closed others are open…experience 11 installations in the various cubicles. The audience  are then guided to the central area and witness a variety of characters intersect. A drama is played out. The second group waits outside and watch the demise of a tragic street performer.
