Moving Stationery

SCIRT WORLD BUSKERS FESTIVAL presents:

Moving Stationery
Friday 18 – Saturday 26 January


Moving Stationery is a multi-award winning solo physical comedy created and performed by Thom Monckton.

This comedy of errors revolves around Sigmund, the bewildered recipient of a new office job who is completely out of his depth. Sigmund’s desperate attempts to defend himself against his own mistakes spiral out of control until he is fighting an epic war against a (deceptively) harmless office. The elevator, his lunch and the office stationery seem set to destroy him.

The show combines object and body manipulation with clown theatre to create an energetic and unique piece of physical comedy.

Due to high demand – and the need for a more intimate venue to allow Monckton’s brand of mime to shine – the venue for Moving Stationery has changed to the YMCA Conference Room just up the road from Busker Park.


LISTINGS INFORMATION:
Address: YMCA Conference Room – YMCA Building, Hereford Street
Dates: Friday 18 – Saturday 26 January
Show Info: All Ages
Times: 6pm
There are seats available for all shows from the WBF Bookings Booth in Busker Park on the day of the show from 11am.
Box Office: 03 377 2365

Howard Davis: The Back of the Painting

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
