RIPE follows Claire, Elisabeth and the worlds they navigate together. One has just left high school, home and her mother’s judgement for a life with a man who won’t pick up the phone. The other knows the city down to its plumbing, people down to their darkness and has theorised her world down to its molecules. Two girls meet on the streets of Sydney and it feels right. It’s a surreal and sensory exploration of the relationships with people who can cut to your core and the safety to be found outside of comfort zones. They spend the night navigating Elisabeth’s clients, Claire’s mother and boyfriend, cat ladies, cruel people, buffets and boats. They exercise compassion and control when met with a violent, volatile world and explore the depths of themselves through the eyes of the other.
