Godface is an experimental and physical work brought to us by Matriark Theatre. Playing at The Old 505 Theatre in Surry Hills as a part of Freshworks, a program designed to bring unconventional works to the stage, the performance has been described as The Mighty Boosh meets Adventure Time.
“The story is about a young girl who goes to a city called Godface, a place populated by gods in all strata – there are gods that live on the street, gods that are chefs and gods that own businesses. The girl enters Godface with the purpose of challenging for the role of leading god in the annual god elections,” told member of Matriark, Scott Parker.
With an ensemble of roughly fifteen puppets and five performers, it may appear modest on the outside. However with an extensive behind-the-scenes production crew and ambitious script, Godface is sure to impress.
Starting work on the performance in 2014, Scott and the team have been hard at it for over a year to get it ready for the big stage and is now in its final steps – be sure to check it out! (MB)
