| 30 AUG – 09 SEPT 2017 |
Weaving physicality and text, The Night Mechanics, is a tale where water is no longer free, where dreams no longer exist. This is the future.
Hine, reluctant to lead her people, battles to gain control from the corporate monster ’The Water Company’ – helmed by the powerful and maniacal Darren.
The two women are poised for collision. Hine is forced to take action to stop Darren – and in doing so creates an unlikely alliance with a Woman of No Nation, a self appointed Mayor who seeks profit in poverty and a Preacher for the Corporate Monster.
Inspired by the world today – the fight for clean water and tino rangatiratanga.
‘If you don’t let us dream… we won’t let you dream.’
The Night Mechanics is the vital new play written + directed by Mīria George, performed by Sarita So, Natano Keni, Carrie Green, Dawn Cheong, Ahi Karunaharan, features design by Cara Louise, Karnan Saba, Tony De Goldi + is produced by Tawata Productions.
