the democratic set: lucas

THE DEMOCRATIC SET is a residency model for creating short films and performances, to explore the belief that all people are, in principle, equal and should enjoy social, political and economic rights and opportunities.


THE DEMOCRATIC SET uses a custom-made film set, a neutral room with two opposing doors.

Disturbingly obvious and tantalisingly strange, THE DEMOCRATIC SET is a rapid series of short live performances and screen-based video portraits created in collaboration with communities.

THE DEMOCRATIC SET is a cavalcade of portrait, soap box and drama.

The Lucas and Ballarat community spent 3 days at the new Lucas Ballarat Community Health building shooting the footage for The Democratic Set – Lucas. The film shoot involved over 130 participants, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 lambs, and horse.
