Rock Hole Long Pipe

Rock Hole Long Pipe was a community theatre production project, staged in Coolgardie in 2008, that told ancient and traditional stories of water from the Goldfields.

Involving a broad cross-section of the Coolgardie and Kambalda communities, the performance was created by students from both locations in a series of workshops run by animator Steve Aiton and community artist Poppy van Oorde-Grainger. The culminating performance was a vibrant, thrilling parade that weaved through the back streets of Coolgardie to the town’s central park.

The Rock Hole Long Pipe project involved actors, musicians, a procession of over 100 students, poets, bikies and the local volunteer fire brigade.
