“A game changer for Australian theatre”
Julian Louis - Artistic Director of NORPA
A B-grade thriller viewed from within the safety of your own car. Throttle is lit by your headlights, heard through your car radio and seen through your windscreen, this is a live-action drive in with a difference.
THROTTLE SHORT VIDEO
What starts as one man’s love song to his Volvo soon turns deadly when human roadkill becomes the walking undead and zombies wreak their terrible revenge. The genius of the piece is the soundtrack heard via the car radio. The sound effects and voiceover — at times sounding like the female voice on a GPS device — are suggestively creepy, while the action playing out in the semi-darkness adds to the mystery and thrills.
