Some objects possess mysterious powers. They can take us back in time. They can remind us of someone. They can make us emotionalâ€”joyful, wistful, homesick.
Objects can also imply drama. When you hear the words ‘window’ and ‘cricket bat’â€¦ what do you think of?
A short chamber performance for a solo performer and a curious audience, Window, Cricket Bat comes to life within the exhibition space of Happy objects at the Australian Design Centre. Become a guest at the glamorous luncheon of one of the world’s most famous playwrightsâ€”evoked with nothing more than a well-loved souvenir and a cracking story.
Produced in a unique collaboration with Griffin, the Australian Design Centre’s Happy objects is a celebration of ‘stuff’â€”material items that are often imperfect, and always deeply symbolic of the lives we lead. Accompanying the exhibition, Window, Cricket Bat is a delightful journey back to London in the 1980s, penned with fond humour by playwright Hilary Bell.
