Wake up Tomorrow

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

10 February 2014


Wake up Tomorrow


A Master of Theatre Arts (Directing) Production


This exciting new work showcases the collective talents of new theatre makers and collaborative mentors in a unique theatre performance that examines our perceptions and expectations of young people with an intellectual impairment. Created by Everybody Cool Lives Here in collaboration with ACTIVE (part of IDEA Services), Wake Up Tomorrow, showing at Te Whaea: Dance & Drama Centre in March, promises to be a compelling adventure that encourages audiences to embrace the potential of imagination and to take a leap of faith into the unknown.

Wake Up Tomorrow fuses narrative and surreal performance styles, juxtaposed with moments of truthful comedy. A smorgasbord of theatrical disciplines, this empowering new work inspires participants and audiences alike to explore, embrace and share their fantasy worlds and creative journeys.

On a long haul flight our minds often drift off into a space of suspended time and reality.

Wake Up Tomorrow is one man’s journey within a journey, as he travels through liminal space and learns more about himself. The Basement Theatre at Te Whaea: Dance & Drama Centre will be transformed into a world of unexpected encounters and challenges that provide the perfect platform from which to explore the themes of the play. The show blends performance languages, with each chapter crafted to showcase the passion and creativity of the young people involved. The audience will find themselves transported to a world where characters ebb and flow through their journeys, creating unexpected emotional and physical dynamics.

Expect a theatrical collage that culminates in a turbulent, welcoming exploration of possibility and what it means to be a part of this very special community in contemporary Aotearoa New Zealand.

Wake Up Tomorrow is directed by Sherilee Kahui as part of the Master of Theatre Arts (Directing) programme, co-taught by Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School and Victoria University of Wellington.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
