SEETHrough

Final stage script support for Gomeroi man Colin Kinchela and Gavin Walters’ SEETHrough.

SEEThrough deals with themes of masculinity and masculine exchange across Blackfulla/Whitefulla cultures, pivoting around the shared experience of the shaving ritual. It consists of the fictionalised biographies of two men, one Blackfulla, one Whitefulla, following them from childhood to adulthood, and encapsulating their relationship with each other, their experiences of entering into manhood, the awakening of sexuality, travels in the world and return to Country, spiritual journeying, cosmology and belief systems, mental states, and physical manifestation of intimacy through the act of shaving and being shaved.

Premiering at Malthouse, May 2013 as part of Next Wave Festival.
