GO SOLO 2008


GO SOLO 2008

Go Solo 2008 presents the exciting future of Kiwi theatre with twenty new New Zealand compositions created and performed by third year actors from Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School.

2008 brings huge variations to the stage - from stylised physical theatre to hip-hop, stand-up comedy to an epic cataclysm, one thousand garage props to a bare-naked stage.

Some highlights this year include: a central North Island sheep farmer who loses his farm to Lord of the Rings tourism, a boozed up bride planning the perfect wedding night, if only she can get her appliances to work, an apocalyptic crisis in a pet food factory in Miramar, the delicate explorations of a Maori Mormon matriarch, and a Vietnam veteran on Anzac Day.

Go Solo 2008 is directed by Jade Eriksen (Penumbra, Arcane, Pakiwaitara), Toi Whakaari Director Annie Ruth and 2007 acting graduate Sophie Roberts (Angels in America, Streetcar Named Desire).

We have 20 new works on offer, 5 groups to choose from and 45 chances to catch a showing. Every group promises a rich collision of individual perspectives and bold theatre making. GO SOLO 2008
