Composed by the Company
1980: The Mill Theatre, Geelong

The production was based on The Clyde Company Papers, a compendium of documents related to the foundation of an early pastoral company which set out from Geelong. It was one of a series of plays staged by the Mill Theatre created from materials of Geelong’s history. The Clyde Company Station was composed of patterns of sound, movement and narrative, evoking the different spaces occupied by the company and its investors in Scotland and Van Diemen’s Land.
