Service station : straying the Australian landscape : a modern Aussie ballad opera
Bendrups, Faye (1996) Service station : straying the Australian landscape : a modern Aussie ballad opera. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.
Have you driven someplace, walked or climbed or jumped in from two miles up? Have you travelled thousands of kilometres world-wide by motor vehicle, round mazes of freeways and off the beaten track? Set against this activity are interruptions, intended or unintended; a necessary fuel stop, an unforeseen accident, R&R, times to debrief, reflect and record. On the road, this duality is a constant. It seemed that a focal point for exploring these opposing forces could be the SERVICE STATION - a place of brief stops and encounters, but also of continual movement -of machinery, vehicles, work; of coming, stopping and going. It was on this premise that this ballad opera was based.
