God is dead.

Oh the horror, the horror.

Theatre company Bow Chicka Wow Wow are to perform their production of Zarathustra Said by the late Alan Brunton. Through Zarathustra Said, Alan Brunton poetically explores the teachings of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

Director Lilicherie McGregor has recently returned to New Zealand after working as assistant to internationally acclaimed director Eugenio Barber and the Odin Teatret in Denmark.

The show is homage to the work of Wellington's Red Mole theatre company and its founders Alan Brunton and, in particular, Sally Rodwell who worked with Lilicherie McGregor and the cast before her passing in 2006.

Wellington jazz band Fertility Festival feature through out the show to create a truly unique and memorable piece of theatre which incorporates dance, live music, butoh and film by France Hervé.

Zarathustra Said is returning after sold-out performances in November, 2007.
