At the end of April, Binge Culture occupied the ASB Waterfront Theatre in Auckland. We were commissioned to devise and direct a show with a group of 16 young performers as part of Auckland Theatre Company's Here & Now Festival. Joel Baxendale, Oliver Devlin and Karin McCracken travelled up to work with the cast for three weekends followed by a two week intensive rehearsal period.
The result was WATCH PARTY - a kaleidoscopic foray into the world of social media and online communication. The promenade performance took place across the entire public space of the building, barring the theatre itself. Theatrescenes called it "critically powerful, passionately social" and "comedy gold".
Shout out to the talented, passionate and energetic cast who embraced our style of theatre and ran headlong into the crowds with it.
