The Special One
The Special One is an intimate 7-minute performance work for audiences of two at a time that takes place in a series of windows. The Special One plays with what is real and really unreal. Audiences step inside a viewing corridor and see an altered view of reality. The work premiered as part of Window World, the lead public art project of Adelaide Fringe 2013, in the windows of the State Library of South Australia. " Inspired by illusion, Noonan’s six-minute piece is a hauntingly beautiful performance and I highly recommend it"
InDaily, February 2013.
Window World is funded by Arts S.A.’s Festivals Commissioning Fund and the Adelaide Fringe.
In March 2014 The Special One was remounted as part of Unexpected Port at Port Mall Shopping Centre, 178 St Vincent Street, Port Adelaide.
Presented in partnership with Renewal SA, Port Mall Shopping Centre, City of Port Adelaide Enfield and Arts SA.

Three Men in a Tub
Three Men in a Tub is a processional street theatre performance. Three men adrift in a bath tub, washing, water abound, three tradespeople; a butcher, a baker and a candlestick maker, citizens travelling town to town. Are these upright citizens of the world or in fact dubious characters looking for somewhere to hang their dirty washing? Three Men in a Tub received funding through the Adelaide Fringe Street Theatre Commission in 2009. This is a piece of unruly and wild street theatre. The work featured in 2010 Port Festival, 2010 WOMADelaide and is regularly spotted in Adelaide’s Rundle Mall.
Trust in Me
Trust in Me is an in-school touring dance theatre performance by Stephen and Caroline Daish exploring the fragile and often complex expressions of trust in young peoples lives. Between 1998 and 2002 the show toured to schools throughout South Australia, Victoria and Queensland.
“A sense of fragility is evoked, along with the shock of the unexpected, capturing the actual sensation we feel when experiencing trust for the first time this show demonstrates tenacity and determination to produce a top quality artistic product” Lowdown, 2002.
This project was funded by Carclew Youth Arts and the Australia Council for the Arts.
