Throttle

21 - 23 Oct

Lock your doors… this live action drive-in thriller is going to be a scream!

A single pane of glass allows us to feel separated from the world outside. It absorbs road rage, and shields us when we sing along to the car stereo. But what happens when that bubble of safety is invaded?

The Farm is a Helpmann Award-winning movement collective, whose physical performances share the fragility and strength of the human condition. In Throttle, their mysterious, thrilling and game-changing work, drive-in traditions and dance-theatre come crashing together.

Lit by your car headlights, heard through your car radio and seen through your windscreen, this is an immersive theatrical experience with a difference. This tyre-squealing show will fill Bulli Showground with a spectacle of stunts and thrilling surprise.

Scream with delight, dive under the dashboard, or grip the hand of your fellow passenger and ignite some fun-fuelled passion. Buckle your seatbelts, you’re in for a ride.

Save with a Merrigong Season Ticket!

This show is part of Merrigong’s Season 2021. To get the best price, book a Season Ticket.

Location Alert! 

This innovative work will be performed at Bulli Showground, transforming it into a drive-in theatre experience. You watch from your car, with the soundtrack on your car radio.

Cars should arrive 45 mins prior to show time.
