Bring The World Premiere Of No Science To Goodbye To The Festival Of Colour And BATS Theatre

Project 2017-03-14 09:35:39 +1300

  1. Ravel Productions is a theatre company whose vision is to tell innovative and engaging stories about people and place. In April this year, we are bringing our new show, No Science To Goodbye to Glenorchy and Wanaka for the Festival of Colour, followed by a season at BATS theatre in Wellington. We need your help to make this happen!

No Science To Goodbye interweaves spoken word, drama and soundscape to show a trio of unravelling lives. The piece has been called a "theatrical poem", with each scene the verse in the larger work.

It is a quintessentially New Zealand story which explores how our lives and decisions are woven together and how we find our place to stand within this landscape. It asks questions that will resonate with people from both the cities and the regions: How are people connected to place?  How do we communicate in today’s world? What is left unsaid in the spaces between our conversations? What are the consequences for the things we don’t say? How do we calculate risk? How do we deal with loss? Where do the poetic and the rational coincide?

After a succesful development season in 2016, the work is now ready to unfurl onstage. We have some funding from the Otago Community Trust, Southland Community Trust, a QLDC Creative Communities grant, RNZ and the Festival of Colour and we just need a little more to cover the travel costs of getting the cast and crew to the Southern Lakes - the home of the play.

Please join us on our journey and support the creation and presentation of new NZ theatre.

4 days left and just $500 to go! And we've added Coastella 2018 tickets to our rewards!

03/04/2017 at 12:21 PM

Take the music lover in your life to the best little beachside music festival in the land. Wellingtonians can enjoy rocking out in the sunshine at this sweet event -an awesome reward for one of our last minute pledgers. That's pretty much half price Coastella 2018 tickets for a couple of our finest fans. Who's in?

Big love and kudos to all those who have helped us get this far. We are so close now! Please spread the word about our campaign to your networks. We look forward to seeing you at the Festival of Colour, BATS theatre or just in cyberspace. You rule!

QUARTER OF THE WAY THERE! 2x 'Showmance' escapes still up for grabs

26/03/2017 at 9:30 AM

Woo hoo, thanks to you guys we are quarter of the way to raising $2K in 2 weeks. Our campaign is rolling along nicely and the top two rewards are still available. Check out Te Kouka apartment - it's a stylish, sweet pad right in central Cuba St, Wellington. Ideal for a couple or a few friends who want to make a night of it and treat themselves to a minibreak in the city with tickets to the show and a lush welcome hamper included. Spread the word! x

ANNOUNCING THE COOLEST REWARD EVER! Play a game of Operation with the Shortland St bomber!

25/03/2017 at 10:36 AM

Our leading man Chris Tempest played the evil Dr Josh Gallagher who blew up the Warner family bach in the 2013 finale. Now a handful of lucky pledgers have the chance to challenge him to a game of Operation. And you get to keep the boardgame as well!
