BATS Theatre: The Wind Speaks to Wellington
Bard Productions present
The Wind Speaks to Wellington
The arrogant humans of the earth have aggravated the elements so much that they couldn’t contain their anger and retaliated on Dec. 2, 2007. Natural disasters, disease and war ravaged the earth. In 2087 the only humans left alive with any form of conscience reside in BATS Theatre.
A devised comedy about the wind in Wellington is disrupted as the Spirit of the Wind takes the body of the Front of House Manager as a host. He comes to BATS Theatre to “relax and watch a play”, but when the actors decide that they can’t go on after this interruption, the Wind decides to put on a play of his own…He uses the bodies of the two actors to give the audience a demonstration of what has happened to BATS Theatre, Wellington, and the world in the year 2087. But what does the Wind God have invested? Why does he care so much about enlightening the people of Wellington?
Bard Productions see theatre as a form of entertainment, and so first and foremost their goal is to entertain. They believe that live performance offers an experience for the audience that cannot be achieved in any other way. To offer such a unique and innovative experience, they constantly search for new ways to morph the craft of theatre into a form that both entertains and inspires.
Starring Paul Stephanus, Hannah Clarke, Dan Greer and Scott Ransom; and featuring the intricate sound design of Emile de la Rey and expert lighting design from Glenn Ashworth, this play will be premiering 27 November to 1 December 2007 at 6.30pm.
