The Shake Up
If push came to shove and things were shaken up, what’s precious to you and what could you do without?
As Tantrum’s BIG project in 2019, The Shake Up will use the 30th anniversary of the 1989 earthquake as a platform for exploring moments of change in Newcastle’s past to prepare for what the future might hold.
The Shake Up will bring together young people, emerging artists, industry professionals and locals to deliver a monumental event from 22-30 June 2019 at Newcastle Museum. This will combine performance, live and public art, and community forum to mark the resilience of Novocastrians, while empowering young people to have the same grit when dealing with adversity.
Central to the project is a partnership with leading contemporary theatre company Branch Nebula from Sydney. Beyond collaborating on The Shake Up, Branch Nebula will be involved with Tantrum over the next 2 years, helping to grow our capacity to produce creative events that place community members at their heart.
