An invisible theatre of surveillance, private enterprise and city activation comes to life in our town square.
The Invisible Opera

Slip on a set of headphones and step into a world conducted by a disembodied libretto, narrating an omniscient vision of the micro dramas, private enterprise and influence of surveillance in a town square.

Created by Australian multidisciplinary performer Sophia Brous—working in collaboration with celebrated theatre makers Lara Thoms and Samara Hersch and New York choreographer Faye Driscoll—The Invisible Opera is a kaleidoscopic trip through the micro and macro dynamics of public space.

As the everyday action of Federation Square unfolds, a voice and an all-seeing eye seemingly choreograph and narrate the environment in real time, instantly bringing into question, what is real and who is watching.
