Trucker Tales: Stories from the Road (2016)
(A Spark event)
Festival audiences are invited to climb into a truck cabin, sit in the trucker’s seat and experience what it feels like to ride high through the western suburbs. The artist did just this as a child, playing for hours with her brothers in their dad’s big rig and semi-trailer, setting up a cubby in the sleeper, chatting to truckers on the road using the
CB radio and of course, blowing the horn. Di Cunningham has made a soundscape that can be played in the cabin, about the rich and fascinating world of trucking families. Told with insight and humour, these personal stories will leave you with a better understanding of the working lives of truckers from the West. The truck will be parked in the yard area of Seaworks.
Trucker Tales is presented as part of Spark.
