Light Sleepers’ Wake

Bright Orange Walls presents
Light Sleepers’ Wake
The night is in the retelling.
“How did you get here?”
“I was trying to find an invisible party...”

Light Sleepers' Wake invites you into a smoky, dingy, bourbon soaked bar that can only be found by the city's loners. Drawing on the work of Edward Hopper, Tom Waits and T.S. Elliot, the show explores what it means to be twenty-something, drunk, and trapped in a genre not your own. Using an original script, music and poetry Light Sleeper’s Wake is an extension of the curiosity and anxieties we share.

A show shaped through searching, Light Sleepers’ Wake is imbued with a sense of discovery; it is an exploration of being lost and overwhelmed. As graduating students in theatre, Light Sleepers’ Wake asks important questions for a new generation of both practitioners and adults going into the world. The play-world seeks to harmonise with the fears of twenty-somethings finishing their education and moving out into employment and responsibility.
Light sleepers’ Wake seens to have come into existance of it own accord; it’s been such an organic, playful, process. In reality, though, the work has clearly been pursuing our love of a kind of elusive theatrical poetry, and been driven by some serious anxieties about our place in the world.” – Director Jonathan Price.
The show is an original devised piece by Bright Orange Walls for the Wellington Fringe Festival 2013. An hour long performance with bar stools, gin bottles, Venetian blinds and smoke, the magic of the show is sure to affect and entice.

2nd – 7th February 2013 at 8:00pm. Bright Orange Walls has secured a place with BATS for 2013 Fringe season.

Bright Orange Walls is a new Wellington based theatre collaboration made up of eleven members with experience in creating theatre. Coming from the Victoria University Theatre programme, Long Cloud Youth Theatre, and Toi Whakaari, we are all students of theatre who take pride in the fact that our performances don’t just represent our creative endeavours, but our educational ones as well. Visit our blog at http://www.lightsleeperswake.wordpress.com to follow our discoveries as we head towards the Fringe Festival.
