Separation Street was developed in a number of creative stages which spanned three years from 2013 – 2015. Polyglot and Suitcase Royale (Miles O'Neil, Joseph O'Farrell and Glen Walton) collaborated with a range of groups at each development stage including the Currajong School and Victorian College of The Deaf. Through a series of creative workshops, the students from these schools mapped out worlds – both real and imagined – which were then displayed as a public exhibition. In the final stages of the development, the workshops explored the notions of separation and division; how adults and children experience one journey in two very different ways. This inclusive approach to developing the work allowed for an authentic message to emerge, informed by many voices and perspectives throughout the life of the work. Separation Street tells the story of Frank, who hears a call from the stars and knows it’s his mission to save whoever is out there. In a simple but radical premise, the adults and children in the audience are separated at the beginning of the show. Frank’s story is experienced by both groups at the same time, but along completely different pathways.
