About Hall and the Bang
Victoria and Glenn first met in Germany 2014 unlocking a shared passion for pushing and being pushed, while discovering a deep mutual respect.
An actor from Perth, Australia. An actor from Göteborg, Sweden. Endless days. Never ending nights. Kangaroos. Reindeer. Vegemite. Ikea.
A long distance collaboration. 13,780 kilometres to be precise.
For Hall and the Bang, it’s this surprise that inspires their Playful Chaos. Trepidation mixed with Trust.
Victoria and Glenn push each others’ buttons in a way that surprises not only their audience, but themselves. Their objective is to be present with each other in every moment, refusing to plan ahead and create stories, rather, to notice the stories that have been created. They are actors who feel first and reason why later. They dig into the humorous and uncomfortable truth of human relationships and in their teaching, striving to empower people to empower themselves to be purposeful.
The secret isn’t to discover what’s not there, but to notice and surprise each other with what’s there.
Like a piece of flatpack IKEA furniture with no branding or instructions.
They decided to tour together and started to plan their shows and common workshops, and have since then travelled around Europe and Australia teaching and performing together.
