The Bathurst Arts and Theatrical Society [BATS] is set to launch its annual winter arts festival today, featuring three unique online productions put together by past and present Charles Sturt University [CSU] theatre media students.
Aptly titled the 'Flu Season,' the festival will feature the sultry, abstract Cornography [July 10, 8pm], the comedic short film Modern Tech [July 11, 8pm] the historical satire podcast An Oral History of the Great Emu War [July 12 and 15, 12pm].
"An Oral History of the Great Emu War explores violence and colonisation through satire, epic and verbatim theatre techniques, while Modern Tech is set in a prank call centre," BATS treasurer Emily Phillips said.
"Cornography is quite different, as it personifies corn is a series of suggestive scenarios."
Ms Phillips said BATS will also host a 'Casual Creations' competition for members of the community creating art in isolation, as well as airings of past shows.
"BATS is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and we're honouring that by streaming productions from past years," she said.
"Casual Creations is open to everyone, and there's a cash prize for the winner."
The festival will run from July 10 to 18. For more information, visit the BATS 2020 Facebook page.
