The Shouting Fence
Adelaide Fringe Festival 2009

The Shouting Fence is a choral theatre work highlighting the experiences of communities in the Golan Heights, separated by wartime land annexations. On Friday evenings the villagers gather at the boundary fence and shout their news across No Mans Land through megaphones. The Shouting Fence asks the audience to become the ‘barrier’ between two choirs. A children’s choir, professional singer/actors and two percussionists lead the two community choirs.
