Paradise Lots

Ava Campbell, 2021

Experimental theatre company Pony Cam team up with a group of young artists to transform an urban car park into a large scale performance space.

We’re creating a new world order.

It looks just like the one you created.

It still has concrete and cars. It still has money and hunger and greed. It still has slurpees. Thank goodness it still has slurpees.

But it’s not your world.

This world was born from the one you watched die.

Experimental theatre company Pony Cam teams up with a group of young artists to transform an urban car park into a large scale performance space. Audiences will be confronted with a series of intimate performance works that challenge unchecked assumptions about youth.

Paradise Lots is an experience trapped between teenage cynicism and middle-aged optimism.

It is dangerous, physical and immediate.

Pony Cam

Pony Cam is an experimental collective of theatre makers from around Australia.

In general, our work identifies as theatre, however we regularly take pleasure in borrowing and bastardising the conventions of film, animation, music, literature, circus, and dance.

Together we have trained for three years in the performance tradition of the Bouffon - a grotesque style of clowning that combines provocative humour with political bite. As such, our shows are grounded in creating live, responsive relationships with our audiences.

Some of our previous works include:

+ A Red Square: A digital theatre work made and experienced entirely on Microsoft PowerPoint, and delivered to audiences’ doors on a USB.

+ Garden Plot: A commission from the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria to create ‘Garden Plot’ - a seductive, menacing series of vignettes that led audiences on a winding journey throughout the iconic gardens.

+ SPORT: in partnership with the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre we created ‘SPORT’ - an interactive clown show for kids and their families.

+ Feast: since 2018, we have staged multiple presentations of our award winning work ‘Feast’, an immersive dining experience that combines a real dinner with our Bouffon performance style.
