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 have brought together seven performers hungry for theatrical revolution. These artists harness their love of fresh and truthful performance in Running With Ghosts; this piece of sensual and interactive theatre is perfect for their debut in the Fringe Festival 2013.
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 five bittersweet characters stuck in limbo regardless of whether they are alive or dead.
“It’s easy to close your eyes but you can’t close your ears,” says actor Eleanor Rowan.
A combination of the skill-sets of 4 Musicians and 2 classically trained Dancers results in a unique form of performance art. The audience will be brought on a promenade of the senses as they engage in what will be a zesty piece of interactive theatre.
“Ghosts are addicted to the energies of humans. We can never know what sort of presence might be lurking in the corner,” says director Cathy-Ellen.
Tony Black, Ashleigh Flynn, Hayley McCarthy, Cathy-Ellen Paul, Eleanor Rowan, and Maryse Ridler.
