Adventure, Passion, Discovery and Rebellion

Adventure, Passion, Discovery and Rebellion.

Pandemonium Theatre (The Butcher’s Daughter and Black Ice) and THE EDGE® bring to the stage a show devised by twelve young aspiring actresses who collectively weave visually stunning tales of feisty women and their daring escapades.

Beyond the Blue is a journey of self discovery and transformation by women who have dared to push the boundaries of their safe existence. It tells of rebels on the run who have journeyed beyond what they know. Past the places others stopped, past the warning signs and safety nets and into the wild beyond.

The work is inspired by female adventurers, such as France’s Margaret Fountaine (Butterfly Collector) and Alexandra David-Neel (Explorer), who claimed “Adventure is the only reason for living” and whose life was devoted to freedom and exploration. This passion made her “unruly in her childhood, rebellious in her adolescence, anarchist in her youth, and one of the wisest "free thinkers" in the 20th century in her old age.”

Join us at the Concert Chamber, Auckland Town Hall, THE EDGE® to celebrate the adventurer within us all who dares to face her demons and live her dreams. Beyond the Blue is directed by Julie Nolan and Kate Parker, produced by Margaret-Mary Hollins and with stunning costumes by renowned designer Elizabeth Whiting.
