With echoes of Antiques Roadshow and internet unboxing videos, ordinary people’s poignant histories and curious collections reveal that behind the common, lies the profound.

With Single Channel Video, Geelong’s pioneering Back to Back Theatre cracks open the archive, conjuring an op-shop of the soul filmed live onstage.

Behind a huge projection screen lies a museum of the everyday. Its shelves are stacked with objects both meaningful and absurd, from a Britney Spears poster to a precious journal passed down through generations. As ordinary people step up to the camera with objects that hold significance to them, a power-play unfolds on the screen between the object, viewer and the self.

Each seemingly insignificant treasure holds a story: ridiculous, banal and profound. Single Channel Video unboxes our relationship to objects, and their ability to act as totems of memory and experience.

Q&A WITH BACK TO BACK THEATRE ENSEMBLE—SAT 11 JUNE, 1PM
A conversation with Bruce Gladwin (Artistic Director and CEO of Back to Back Theatre) and the Back to Back Theatre Ensemble. Together they’ll discuss the creation of Single Channel Video and its “Train the Trainer” model, how it can be a platform for inclusion beyond the arts and changing perceptions of people with disabilities through theatre.

- Duration: 30 minutes
- Facilitator: Tom Middleditch (Artistic Director of A-Tistic and RISING’s Access and Inclusion Coordinator)
- Price: Free
