Extraction by The Space Company

Ignition | Creative Engine Grant Recipient 2020

Based on a true story, this theatre show tells the remarkable tale of a mass whale stranding in a remote corner of Tasmania and a small town community that went to save them.

A new theatre work that explores a wide variety of genres - comedy, mystery and neo-noir structural elements - alongside original music that adventures into folk, electronic/atmospheric and chamber music.

Spanning across multiple generations, Extraction investigates how profiteering and a lack of meaningful custodianship of the natural environment leads to the destruction of everything.
