Binge Culture call it “a surreal cocktail of live performance, sound and interactive technologies, where the stage is everywhere and the audience are the action”
John Smythe from Theatreview called it an “invigorating subversion of theatrical conventions..."The prosaic, sublime, ridiculous and magical interweave as the 90-minute theatrical journey transports us to other climes and states of being... it may well be worth a random second visit. Meanwhile, book your first visit now."”
Lynn Freeman from the Capital Times said "Binge Culture Collective has always pushed the envelope, never more so than with this work. It plays with the theatre conventions, smashing down the third wall and taking audience participation to a whole new level."
Book now and find out for yourself what WAKE LESS is!
Our new show, made as part of STAB 2011, opens on November 11.
In WAKE LESS, we've explored the use of mask- something we've wanted to do for ages. We're seeing what we can make of the meeting between the simplicity of this form, and the roughness that Binge has explored in the past. It's an exciting contrast and a great challenge. We've also collaborated with AV designers from Interrupt Collective, which has added a whole new texture to the show.
WAKE LESS features Simon Haren, who has been in every Binge show, and Izzy MacKinnnon, who's collaborating with us for the first time. We're including the audience and drawing attention to the event of theatre and entertainment itself- places we go to put reality out our mind. It's a twisty, unpredictable, funny piece and we can't wait to share it!
You can book by emailling book@BATS.co.nz, or by phoning BATS on (04) 802 4175. See you there!
