Chamber Made Opera has collaborated with independent company Lemony S Puppet Theatre for 'Captives of the City', a dynamic fusion of digital puppetry, live animation, music and performance.

'Captives of the City' is a site-specific performance, designed to take place in an unusual, underground, back-of-house space at Arts Centre Melbourne- deep beneath the Playhouse Theatre stage.

Inspired by recent global events and the worldwide demand for political change, 'Captives of the City' is a radical, layered exploration of the desire for change and the internal and physical battles fought to achieve it. Using custom-designed animation technology fused with live performance, 'Captives of the City' examines the artists' role within charged political times. The work also explores ways in which digital technologies and social networking platforms have impacted on contemporary processes of collective action.

Directed by Sarah Kriegler, the work contains music movements for percussion and double bass composed by David Young alongside a full electronic sound score by Jethro Woodward.
