Geelong Arts Centre in association with Sweet Reasons and Performing Lines.
Created by Kit Brookman and André Jewson.
Mountain is the story of a man in pieces. Adrift in grief, he becomes fixated by the idea of hiking up a mountain. But even on the simplest of journeys it can be difficult to find the way back.
The man’s journey up the mountain opens precipitously outward, to encompass not just his own voice, but the voice of the mountain, the wind, of a planet crying out for what it’s losing and what it’s already lost.
Shifting perspectives from the deeply personal to the epic, this new solo work by writer/director Kit Brookman and performer André Jewson is a determined search for hope amidst utter devastation.
Mountain is a hymn to the transformative power of grief, to the wonder of the unknown.
