DIRECTOR Fiona Green will undertake some experimental theatre during the Writers' Festival at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre this weekend.

In the performance piece by Ms Green which runs for just 15 minutes and also features Tracy Sorensen and Chai Palila women explore the idea of the invisible body.

BMEC creative producer Kylie Shead said Ms Green came up with the idea and she approached Tracy and Chai to see if they wanted to tell the stories of their invisible bodies.

"They agreed, and we have been working during the past few months to bring this work together," she said.

Ms Green said she was excited to be performing the work as a part of the Writers' Festival.

"BMEC Local Stages has supported this development and Kylie Shead is looking forward to seeing the work presented at the festival," she said.

Mrs Shead said BMEC was happy to come on board.

“Words, books and language are so important to our work here at BMEC – and it makes sense for a performance like this one to sit alongside panels about writing, books and ideas. We are all about ideas and of course supporting local artists – it’s a natural partnership,” she said. 

This new short work will be performed as a part of the Writers’ Festival running this weekend at BMEC.

Performance times are 8pm tonight and 1pm tomorrow.

The performance is only 15 minutes long. 

Mrs Shead said everything at the Writers’ Festival is free and there is no need to book tickets.

Festival sessions start at 10am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. View full program online.
