Life. After.

Project 2013-02-14 00:20:14 +1300

curated

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.

A drama about life, death and what lies in between.

Unaware of her sudden and unexpected death, Stella (Liz Kirkman) returns to her flat to find her sister Maya (Anita Ross) has moved in. Together, they go through the process of grieving, dealing with the absurd situation they have found themselves in, embarking on a journey of figuring out where they belong and how to find the courage to move on.

This is Uther, our lighting guru (from our Facebook page):

Uther Dean does lots of things like light shows, direct shows, and occasional dips into journalism but more often than not when someone is paying him to do something it's writing. He has a Masters in Screenwriting from the prestigious International Institute of Modern Letters. In 2011, he led Salient magazine to a Best Publication award win at the Aotearoa Student Press Association Awards. He's also one of the founders of acclaimed theatre company my accomplice. He tweets as @utherlives and thinks you look lovely today.

Uther's involved with Life. After. because he believes that nothing is more vital to the growth of theatre in New Zealand than the cultivation and support of exciting new playwrights. Anita is one of those exciting playwrights and Uther couldn't be more rapt to be involved in guiding this fresh new slice of work to the stage.

This is Charlotte, our Producer (from our Facebook page):

Charlotte Elizabeth Larsen is an actor/producer. She is Wellington born, UK bred, has a BA in Film and Theatre from Victoria University, Wellington, and has trained at Stella Adler Academy of Acting, Los Angeles.

Charlotte has produced films (most recently Great Expectations starring Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham-Carter and the upcoming Lost Angels), theatre (A Stye of The Eye, The Elephant Man) and Wellington's very own wickedly-entertaining web-based chat show FixTV. She resides in Los Angeles and Wellington.

Charlotte loves Anita's play and really loves seeing new talent grow - it's a perfect combination!

That sounds great!

This is Tane, our sound designer (from our Facebook page):

Our Sound Designer Tane Upjohn-Beatson is a Wellington based composer and sound designer working in theater and film. He also performs regularly as a live accompanist for improvised theater. He has worked on over forty NZ plays and films, receiving Chapman Tripp nominations for the Constance Scott Kircaldie Outstanding Composer of Music Award in both 2009 (A Most Outrageous Humbug) and 2010 (Katydid), and the Park Road Post Production Sound Designer Of The Year Award in 2011 (The Engine Room), and a Chapman Tripp win of the Critics Choice Award for improvised musical 'Vance Fontaine: Command Performance' in 2012.

You can view some of his previous work at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80uARI0-R9U

Tane says, 'Life.After is gearing up to be an exciting and innovative show. I was initially attracted to the script's gestural and surreal nature, immediately conjuring a soundscape in my head of barely heard voices, distant bells, and lullabies on the wind. At times poignant, menacing and playful and all with a heavy handed dose of lynch-esque magic realism, I'm really looking forward to scoring and sound designing this piece of theatre!'
