Beautiful Disaster Strikes Wellington

Beautiful Disaster Strikes Wellington

(SCOOP NOTE: This release replaces a historical release at the author's request)

Christchurch crew brings a china-smashing story of fear, tea, disasters and freedom

“Do you believe in disasters? In Christchurch, we do” – says Nataliya Oryshchuk, the producer and the lead actress of the show My Beautiful Disaster.

After its first successful season in Christchurch, My Beautiful Disaster is coming to the Wellington Fringe Festival, at the Gryphon Theatre, 14-17 February 2013 at 6.30pm. The Christchurch performers are keen to share their story with a Wellington audience.

... Lonely Frau Agnieszka lives in a big house by the sea. Surrounded by her lovely tea cups and other knick-knacks, she is deeply afraid of the unknown disaster that creeps closer with every tick of the clock…
At times funny, at times frightening, this show combines comedy, drama and physical theatre to tell the story of imaginary and real disasters.

Members of the Christchurch audience commented:

“So expressive, so personal, such huge onstage personality. A delightful piece of theatre/performance art reflecting on the power of catastrophe as a cathartic release from fear, routine, mundanity…” (Daniel Webster, Christchurch)
“Crisp, honest, never pretentious and a bit different. This piece is a cameo: a very pure and simple little story with a gloriously real and affirming end… It is a beautiful, moving thing to see and share” (Nona Verwoerd, Canterbury)
“Excellent show! Great visuals and some nice eerie moods” (John Boyce, Christchurch)

This physical theatre project was awarded the 2012 Scribble Circus Fund and features Ukrainian-born Christchurch-based theatre and circus performer Nataliya Oryshchuk (Agnieszka, producer, script-writer), actress Stephanie Cusick (Gunda), and the dancers and acrobats Cameron Mason, K.B.G. Purple and Amber Liberte (Creepy-Crawlies). Co-directed by Nataliya Oryshchuk and Damien McGrath, original music and soundscape by Charlotte Crone.

It is a family friendly show, though young children might find some scenes frightening. Recommended age PG10. Duration approximately 40 minutes. Tickets $15/$12. Book on http://www.dashtickets.co.nz/
