WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU CAN'T GO HOME?
YOU FIND A NEW ONE.
With a cast from Russia, India, the Czech Republic, Albania, Brazil, Canada, France, Samoa, New Zealand and China, CULTURE CLASH explores the idea of “What is home?”
Culture Clash is an incredibly diverse and culturally rich project where 25 talented people from all over Auckland have come together to create a truly unique, live ensemble performance. We incorporate dance, live music, storytelling and song. This clash of cultures is funny, colourful and alive; it examines freedom, what truly makes us happy, what can destroy us and what, when all is said and done, will make us laugh.
Directed by Beth Kayes of Co-Theatre Physical and creatively produced by Margaret-Mary Hollins, CULTURE CLASH is a multi-disciplinary performance. It is a celebration of people of different ages, ethnicities, and disciplines in a beautiful cultural collision.
Drawing on our cast's own stories as inspiration, CULTURE CLASH motivates us to examine what we take for granted, appreciate the choices that we are free to make and ponder the question, “What the hell would we do if everything was taken from us?”
CULTURE CLASH is an examination of lives under pressure, people making epic decisions and individuals running into what really matters. This devised journey explores the extraordinary and ordinary stories of home, and other dangerous places!
CULTURE CLASH is produced by TAPAC in collaboration with skilled professionals. We are working with the performing arts community who regularly create and perform at TAPAC and we have devised a rich and striking show that is not to be missed.
DATES: 26th October – 3rd November 2012 (no show on the 29th)
