New life for BiDiNG TiME in 2023

Its been a dormant period, a global pandemic and changing global conditions that are disrupting all of our lives....

After a 25year hiatus, original collaborators Pippa Bailey and Sarah Butler revisit the BiDiNG TiME project together and review all the work that has happened across many years. The ambition is to produce an updated text that put the Climate Emergency and exploration of systems at the forefront of a new Australian version of the unfinished text.

As Executive Director at Shark Island Kangaroo Valley and a theatre maker, as well as co-founder and Artistic Director of The ARTSLAB – a program of new films, music, theatre and conversations, that runs through the year in the valley; Sarah brings a wealth of experience of developng and structuring film and theatre. Pippa has long experience as a producer, directtor and strategic consultant in the UK and Australia.

Pippa and Sarah initially joined forces with Wednesday Kennedy as aspiring performers in 1987 to create their first show in Sydney, then they remounted the show with Brianne Cuthbert in Melbourne, touring it to Adelaide Fringe.

Then Pippa picked up the story in 2007 and reimagined it into a contemporary London setting with various workshops, developments and productions.

Back in Australia there was an iteration created in regional NSW in 2016. Now Pippa and Sarah reunite to reflect on this long process, update the script and plan for a crowd sourced version of the show. We are 37years and counting...
