Performing Nostalgia at Sydney Opera House
Tuesday Drive’s Felix Shannon speaks with Steve Wilson-Alexander about video stores, nostalgia, friendship and re:group performance collective’s upcoming production ‘COIL,’ which is set to come to Sydney Opera House from Wednesday the 8th of June to Saturday the 11th of June as part of this years ‘UnWrapped’ lineup.
Browsing online streaming services has replaced the joyous awe of wandering the aisles of the local Video Ezy’s and Blockbuster’s. Playfully blending theatre and cinema, ‘COIL’ is a nostalgic ode to the glory days of the video store, commemorating the communities and collective memories that were founded within their poster-ridden walls.
