'Disclosed (a performance in three cells)'
THE FOUNDERS ROOM
7 & 8 August

In 1849, the Separate Prison at the Port Arthur commenced operation. Under the “Separate System”, prisoners were kept completely isolated and speech was forbidden. Trapped between whitewashed walls, prisoners’ only place to go was within themselves. Disclosed opens the doors to convicts’ personal worlds- small and square, but housing infinite dreams.
