Past Event

The Disappearances Project

Fri 15 Feb 2013

When a person disappears, the immediate effects are devastating. When they remain missing years later, how do those left behind cope with living in the limbo of not knowing and come to terms with the agony of loss?

Tracing the trajectories of hope, anger and grief over years of police investigations into a range of unexplained disappearances, the Australian ensemble version 1.0 explores the effects of long-term missing persons cases on individuals, families and communities. This intimate, beautiful and haunting performance uses collected testimony and specially commissioned film sequences to chart the search for lost loved-ones, the process of piecing together shattered lives and the toll of endless, fruitless searching.
