NYT in 2018
DARE TO DEVISE - July 2018
Proudly sponsored by Creative Communities NZ
Dare to Devise is a 48 hour Devised Drama Competition. Teams have only 1 weekend to create an original 10 minute piece of theatre and then perform it in front of an audience and panel of expert judges.
Dare to Devise is an opportunity to create theatre and perform to an audience in a fun and spontaneous way. The pressure cooker environment of 48 hours to write, rehearse and perform is an exciting way to create something entertaining and original. There isn't time to second guess, fuss over costume and set - it's raw and honest storytelling - often funny and always sleep deprived.
THE GARDEN THAT TIME FORGOT - March 2018
The Garden that Time Forgot was a site-specific devised performance set in the Whangarei Quarry Gardens in collaboration with NYT, the Gardens and Circus Kumarani.
This original performance was devised by a talented cast under the direction of Georgia May Pope and Sarah Parker.
We were extremely lucky to have Toi Whakaari graduate Hayley Douglas create amazing costumes that really elevated the aesthetics of the performance and married perfectly with the garden environment.
Our directors and production team worked tirelessly with our enthusiastic cast of young people, in order to creative a performance that invited our audience to step through the looking glass and into a magical garden inhabited by creatures from our imagination.
