Designer-Caitlin Le Harivel Director-Geoff Pinfield Playwright-Jo Randerson
An absurdist farce, inspired by the New Zealand Terrorism Suppression Act and the arrests of the “Urewera Seventeen” by the New Zealand Police in November 2007.
The performance space was composed as if in a film studio, with three separate sets-the activists lounge, the police station and the media room. The audience was divided into three, then moved through the “backstage” area visiting each set and viewing the performance as three separate parts, which all ran simultanesously.
The design of each set continued into the seating area with the audience being fully enclosed within each world.
