APOLLO BAY FORESHORE
The Redemption – Part One – Immolation
In a small fishing village at the edge of a huge dry continent, the children have all vanished. Down at the seawall the mothers keep a vigil while the fishers fish. When a rare catch is hauled in, the whole village turns out to see. Is it an omen? Does it hold the answer to the missing children? Is what follows a barbaric path to redemption or a strange and touching love story? See the village turn out to tell its tale over two Saturday nights while the moon wanes, the waves wash in and the fires are lit.
“What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark?
The Redemption – Part Two – Resurrection
Gather on the Great Ocean Road next to the Apollo Bay Surf Lifesaving Club The continuation and resolution of the first part of our village’s story.
The Great Ocean Road will be closed to allow a ceremonial parade leading to a huge bonfire and its final revelation.
The DogWatch lies at the heart of WinterWild.
The DogWatch is a short watch stood by sailors in the early evening, normally between 6 and 8pm. We assemble on the foreshore during these same hours to celebrate WinterWild. The DogWatch is a free public performance held every Saturday evening that teases out the themes of the festival.
Directed by Roderick Poole (founder of Melbourne performance theatre company Strange Fruit) and Eloise Wood (WildHoney Performing Arts), the DogWatch is hosted by the light of the WinterWild fire which rages inside the skeleton of a wrecked boat. Talented local artists are supported by visiting performers in an event that will change the way you think about the creative heart and mind of rural Victoria.
All are welcome at the DogWatch. Come out into the cold and the darkness. Feel the mud under your feet and the smoke in your hair. Be prepared to be rain drenched and wind buffeted. Be prepared to be carried away by the light of the fire
