Sailing on at the South Coast Children’s Festival
Despite windy and wet conditions, Ghostship sailed around the rocky shore of the Illawarra Performing Arts centre for the 2011 South Coast Children’s Festival. This new interactive performance was commissioned by the crew of Merringong Theatre Company and featured sailors, songs and ‘sand’wiches. Thanks go to the ‘techie’ team at Merringong for helping us shift 2.5 tonnes of sand and battle strong head winds as we tacked our way across the plaza.
“I woz poor and I woz firsty
I ‘ad nuffink to lose
So I jumped aboard wiv Nancy
On wot she called a pleasure cruise…”
