SLUDGE BANK

CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT //  By Chance Collective

Presented by Metro Arts

This camp comedy brings horror genres to meet real-life climate disaster fears in a hyper-stylised performance experience. 

A snarky slime-creature is lurking in the pipes of a newly erected Meanjin (Brisbane) development called Riverbank Towers. This inner-city, upper-class apartment building is rapidly filling with the mysterious, sentient slime that won’t stop until it has consumed every cavoodle in sight. It is up to the residents to put aside their body-corporate bureaucracy, paleo vs vegan diet debates, and Instagram activism to save themselves and everyone else in the face of global disaster.

Featuring an original song by feminist, indie-pop band Bad Sext, Sludge Bank is Chance Collective’s stickiest show yet.
