Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita (Tasmania) upon which our Festival takes place.

Tasmanian Theatre Company presents

One Crowded Hour

World Premiere

60 mins

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY TERENCE O’CONNELL

Inspired by Tim Bowden’s bestselling biography

Documentary footage and live performance paint a portrait of this frontline cameraman.

The enduring legacy of Tasmania’s frontline cameraman Neil Davis will be showcased in One Crowded Hour – a dramatic unfolding of his life story.

After a childhood in the peaceful town of Sorell, Davis embarked on a journey to the world’s most dangerous regions of unrest. From the battlefields of South East Asia he captured horrific images of warfare and for more than 20 years his footage was broadcast into homes around the world.

This story of the combat cameraman features documentary footage, live performance and striking imagery wrapped in an atmospheric soundtrack.
