“You can no more win a war than you can win an earthquake.” – Jeannette Rankin
Women’s Circus presents THE DRILL; a bold new feminist circus work exploring the untold stories of war through the lens of those left behind. Disappear into the world of 1914 for a surreal journey that blurs the lines between contemporary circus, immersive theatre, historical re-imagining and art installation.
Created and performed by over sixty members, alongside a team of renowned artists and drawing on the original purpose of the Footscray Drill Hall – service for WW1 – THE DRILL uncovers buried stories to explore the effects of war on communities.
