AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dust is a peek into Australian homes from the not too distant past, when families were overtly exposed to asbestos through domestic products like toothpaste, playdough, hair dryers and cigarette filters – all made with asbestos!

'This fast-paced multi-media theatre production takes its audience on an almighty journey. Set in two parts, Dust delivers a roving performance incorporating sideshow, rock ‘n' roll, film and a vortex of dust! A traditional approach unfolds for the second half, featuring Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors) with a choir of 50 voices made up of local singers and performers. The production incorporates local stories and experiences with asbestos within each State.'
