Description of performance Visual installation and Performance
Summary Diving Horses was created by second year students studying performance at Deakin University’s School of Communication and Creative Arts (SCCA) to bring to life the ghosts of a bygone era through visual installation and performance. You are invited to enter backstage and interact with the working life behind the spectacle and explore the untold stories and private moments behind the scenes of Wirth’s Circus- ‘the greatest show on earth’. Students have been asked to respond to the rich history of the Arts Centre Melbourne site and undertake research into the lives of the workers that inhabited the site from 1907 until the Wirth’s buildings were destroyed by fire in 1953. Some of the characters you will encounter are based on actual historical figures and others are drawn from archetypical sources as the students explored the fascinating backstage world of Australian circus life.
