CELL 26 `tells` the story of a former prison cell on the Ulumbarra Theatre site.

Using the cell as inspiration, documentary artist Roslyn Oades and local musician Eliza Hull have created an intimate 30-minute listening experience that explores the layers of story embedded in the site. The work draws on interviews, field recordings and original composition.
