IN THE SHADOW IT WAITS – interview with Michael Beets


Award-winning director Michael Beets will premiere his latest film experience In The Shadow It Waits on Thursday 4 June at 8.30 pm. The film tells the story of four twenty-something co-workers bored with their day jobs and sick of being locked up in isolation, who play a silly online game and unwittingly prove the truth of an urban legend. And while these co-workers might not be able to get out, it doesn’t mean that something can’t get in. But this is no ordinary film experience. In The Shadow It Waits is a horror film performed live and edited in real-time with actors performing from their own homes in different states across Australia. The audience is witnessing a film being made as they’re watching it.

Performances 4, 5 & 6 June at 8.30pm and 11, 12 & 13 June at 8.30 pm
