What Goes Up...

Project 2013-07-17 03:14:38 +1200

Collab Project with Bats

Inspired people, new ideas, innovation and exciting performance are the lifeblood of theatre practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. BATS Theatre’s Purpose/Kaupapa is to provide a supportive, professional and accessible theatre venue that fosters the development of practitioners, audiences and New Zealand performance work.

Pat-A-Cake Productions is a team of Wellington’s fresh theatre-makers devising physical theatre. Established in late 2012 over coffee and cake, they have their debut BATS Theatre show, 'What Goes Up…' August 20th-24th.

Blurb

Karma is the reason. The scapegoat. The solution. ‘Karma’s a bitch!’ But Karma is fed up with copping the blame for that $20 you dropped out of your own pocket. 

 What Goes Up… is an examination of karma for the not necessarily spiritual. A guide to karma proclaims we are the architects of our own fate. Any guide to physics reminds us that what goes up must come down. We invite you to discover with us just how powerful these gravity-based justice systems are…What we force up might force us right back down! 

What Goes Up… is Pat-A-Cake's original conversation with karma. It hones in on cause and effect. It speaks in a language of legs. It busies both the body and mobile design to question our community's convenient kinship with an out of kilter Karma. 

 But we need your help. 

We have fallen short of dollar bills due to growing costs to use community halls as rehearsal spaces around Wellington City. When we found a cheap rehearsal space for only $10 a session, we praised karma and knew she was on our side. However, that was short lived due to most community spaces being closed due to earthquake strengthening and now we have to resort to space for a minimum of $20 an hour. Therefore, we no longer have the sufficient funds needed to make an awesome set. Our designer and prop extraordinaire, Anna Robinson, needs your help to source the materials she needs. We don’t want to completely spoil the surprise but your contribution will go towards fold-away tables, wooden crates, an abundance of apples that will magically fall from the sky or fly into the space with a state of the art contraption… or something of the sort. 

So please, if you could help with even the smallest donation or by sharing this round all your friends and family, we would be very grateful.
