Kasey Is Missing a community engagement project I worked on in association with ICE (Information & Cultural Exchange) a happening organisation that funds, supports and connects various emerging and professional artists from a spectrum of disciplines. Situated in the heart of Parramatta.
This 5 part web series is the result of several years of collaboration with Nepean Community and Neighbourhood Services (NCNS). From story development to performance workshops to several weeks of shooting and hours of editing, this process allowed us to collect local stories over several years and developed them with the community into a narrative.
While it is fiction, the story and performances align themselves closely to the truth. The performer’s are not acting, they are being. Very little dialogue was written and this keeps the verbal exchanges honest and more authentic. The result is a beautiful observational piece exploring the joys and pains of being young.
