Creative | Space

There seems to be a mysterious link between creativity and space. Some venues foster creativity and brilliant performances, while others just don't seem right. Some people need space to be creative, others find creativity through collaboration with others. Creativity thrives on the traditional stage. But 'the stage' can also be a pedestrian mall, or a dance event. These five short documentaries each explore the dynamics of creativity and space in different ways. 'Palace of Desire: Story Behind the Stage' introduces us to the the 'Cathay Play House' community theatre group as they prepare for their 10th anniversary performance. 'Work-Shop' looks at the energy surrounding a new community driven craft space in Chippendale, Sydney, while 'Red Rattler' takes us behind the red curtains of the Marrickville performance space of the same name. 'Stories from the Street' looks at that unique interaction between the busker and the audience on the street, while 'Hardstyle Is Our Style' takes us into the moshpit, providing gritty insight into Australian hard dance festivals.
