The Passenger

The Deconvertors' foreboding new micro-show speeds you in a car around Sydney's streets.

It's easy to forget Jack Nicholson is safe and well sometimes, and the reason is a classic 70s film by Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni called The Passenger. It oozes gloom and foreboding the way others flicks leak detonations or kisses. As a film, or even the inspired Iggy Pop song, it's a title that crams itself with coming menace. Sydney performance group the Deconvertors — who have brought you Aussie kitch as part of Loading Zone at the 2009 This Is Not Art festival, and The Hideous Demise of Detective Slate at last year's Sydney Fringe — are offering you a unique mobile dramatic experience, and just to lighten the mood they've named it The Passenger.

It's not often a play asks you to accept a disclaimer before booking your tickets. The Passenger does this. It takes place in a real moving vehicle, picking you up near the old Glebe Town Hall before the actors drive you through the story, Sydney's backstreets and take you to the mysterious 'destination'. Driving carefully, the Deconvertors want you to live. But they may not want you to feel good about it. The only way to know for sure is book a ticket, stand on a quiet corner and wait for your ride.

The Passenger offers four performances a night on Wednesday the 27th and Friday the 29th of April. Booking is essential.
