Catastrophe Collective brings together seven performers hungry for theatrical revolution. These artists harness their love of fresh and truthful performance. Their piece of sensual and interactive theatre is perfect for their debut in the Fringe Festival 2013.

Catastrophe Collective is based in Wellington and aspires to create beautiful, colourful, daring theatre. The collective was co-founded by Cathy-Ellen Paul and Ashleigh Flynn, who aim to use this opportunity as a springboard into the theatre industry.

Running With Ghosts is a devised work that embraces the collision of the supernatural world with our own and questions the existence of the connection between these realms. Audience members will follow the journeys of six characters stuck in limbo regardless of whether they are alive or dead.

“We’re not in touch with our souls anymore; technology clogs our spiritual arteries” says Cathy-Ellen.

A combination of the skill-sets of 4 Musicians and 2 classically trained Dancers results in a unique form of performance art.

February 2013 will see Catastrophe Collective’s theatrical debut take the stage to showcase their first piece of devised theatre. The audience will be brought on a promenade of the senses as they engage in site-specific interactive theatre.


Tony Black, Ashleigh Flynn, Hayley McCarthy, Cathy-Ellen Paul, Eleanor Rowan, and Maryse Ridler.
