Transforming a vacant urban space into a corner of a ruined city, Battle Hymn looks to transform the relationship between an audience and theatre. Produced in association with Victoria University of Wellington, the play is by Cassandra Tse, the music Bruno Shirley. Unsuitable for standard theatre spaces, the production takes place over at least four separate playing spaces, the audience moving with it. In the play a decade of war has left the world in chaos and disarray. A small group of survivors have banded together in a tiny settlement, sheltering from disease and conflict. When a group of mysterious, silent beings appear in the settlement, the group must decide just how much change they can learn to live with; and how far they will go to survive. Artists website here.
