Rock Hole Long Pipe

Project Overview

ROCK HOLE Project Overview Mobile


The Rock Hole Long Pipe project was a community theatre production staged in Coolgardie in 2008, involving a broad cross section of the Coolgardie and Kambalda communities.

The performance told ancient and traditional stories of water from the Goldfields and was created by students from Coolgardie and Kambalda in a series of workshops run by animator Steve Aiton, and community artist Poppy van Oorde-Grainger.

The Rock Hole Long Pipe performance was a vibrant, thrilling parade that weaved through the back streets of Coolgardie to the town’s central park and involved actors, musicians, a procession of over 100 students, poets, bikies and the local volunteer fire brigade.
