About: Small Metal Objects

This ingenious theatrical gem unfolds amidst the commuter rush at Stratford Station. Sitting above the main concourse with you own set of headphones, you'll be wired into a secret and intensely personal drama as it unfolds somewhere in the crowd.

Gary and Steve are the kind of men who normally escape notice. But they're about to play an inadvertent but pivotal role in the day of two ambitious executives who they've arranged to meet for a transaction. As the intimacy of their situation develops, small metal objects becomes a sly and luminous depiction of an age where a person's value is determined by their productivity.

Back to Back makes locally devised but globally relevant theatre. Know for its ability to illuminate complex issues with a unique form of lateral thinking, the company is driven by an ensemble of six actors considered to have intellectual disabilities.

Back to Back's last two major works have premiered to critical and audience acclaim and sold out at the Melbourne International Arts Festival small metal objects won The Age Critics’ Special Commendation in 2005 and Soft won The Age Critics Award for Creative Excellence in 2002. Their previous work, Cow, was part of LIFT in 2003.

‘A theatrically brilliant idea that works superbly.’ The Age

‘A pure, open-hearted, complex and breathtaking production and a unique meditation on human worth.’ Sydney Morning Herald
