Yes, it's that time again! As Lies, Lies and Propaganda's second ever production, Zeroville, approaches, it's time to meet the cast. First up is Sinead Curry:

Hi, Sinead. What role are you playing? 

I play A.N.N.A. 

And that's all you can tell us. Favourite moment in rehearsals so far?

Learning the Zeroville dance (it's awesome; just you wait!).

Is this production different from anything you've seen before?

I've never seen a sc-ifi stage production ever, so yes.

Have you done much devised work before?

Yeah I've devised a lot. Each time it's completely different.

What's it like making a site-specific performance? 

Site-specific theatre is rad! We have enjoyed factoring in the architecture to our devising process. The glass-walled pavilion we are performing in is almost like a character within itself.

How have you researched your role?

Blade Runner, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, Dune, Rodchenko's art, The Gallows, Roy Orbison, Black Mirror.

What's been your experience of Parramatta?

I have not yet been to Parramatta. Parramatta is thus elusive.

What's your favourite sci-fi or noir film?

My favourite noir work is LA Confidential (modern choice), and Blade Runner is my favourite sci-fi work.

What music do you listen to when you are sad?

Iggy Pop and the Stooges, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, Big Maybelle.

When is the last time you got really mad or laughed hysterically?

I laugh hysterically all the time. The last time I got super mad was when the garbage men scraped the side of my car!

Describe your relationship with technology.

Platonic.

Is there a celebrity or someone with whom you are totally obsessed? What would you do if you met him/her?

Iggy Pop. I would thank him for his contribution to society, and then die happily on the spot.

If you could hire an actor to voice-over your life, who would it be?

The human treasure that is Sir Ian McKellan. Sir Ian, Sir Ian, Sir Ian, Sir Ian.

WHAT IS THE MAIN THING THAT WILL SPELL THE END OF THE HUMAN RACE?

Absence of love and togetherness.

WHAT IS THE AUDIENCE GOING TO GET A KICK OUT OF IN ZEROVILLE?

Something fresh and daring being thrust at them.

See Sinead in Zeroville, part of the Anywhere festival, at the Justice Precinct, Parramatta, 8-16 May. Details here. Tickets Here.
