The Crying Room

Crying rooms are the small, soundproof chambers at the back of theatre auditoriums where a person can fully experience an event via one-way glass and live audio feed without disrupting the congregation. But what if a crying room was actually a space dedicated to emotionality? A place not to conceal tears, but to invoke them?

Marcus' At Home Residency Showing will present and explore working themes for The Crying Room - an alchemy of sound, words, sweat and tears. A Q&A session will also take place as part of this showing.

What is Take Over!?

A unique partnership between Arts Centre Melbourne and Melbourne Fringe, this year’s program features 10 fearless and unique artistic explorations that will take shape in artists’ homes across Victoria in the lead up to their presentation at Melbourne Fringe in November 2020.

What are the At Home Residency Showings?

This an opportunity to connect with the Take Over! artists at the end of their at home residencies and get an insight into the creative process. We have not been explicit with artists about what this showing must be. Some may share a part of the work they are developing, others might want to talk to you about their ideas. Others might need you to participate in an activity. There might be talking, dancing, reading, debating, sharing, singing, laughing, crying or music. You may be a passive audience member or you may want to contribute.

There are many unknowns, but one thing is guaranteed, you will be sharing in a creative process with some of our most visionary and boundary pushing artists – and that’s a rare opportunity.
