THE QUIET ROOM

What would you sacrifice to live, really live? Marianne is turning sweet sixteen. Problem is, she’s stuck in hospital with the cancer she’s been battling for years. Her mum’s willing to try anything. Her doctor is hoping for a miracle. And time is running out.

The Literatti and partners present an encore performance of reTHiNK Possible Worlds with the addition of new poets with new worlds and The Time Machine, an interactive moving-image performance installation that you need to see to believe.

“It offers constant glimmers of hope, escape routes and pathways to human dignity.” – Theatre View

reTHiNK Possible Worlds is a multimedia theatre show that weaves together dance, poetry, film, visual art and music to tell the story of several characters as they navigate their way out of madness and rethink their possible worlds.

After their sell-out shows in 2011, Theatre review called it “well-padded and full. It was like eating a good meal: not so much that we are sore, not so little that we are still hungry”.

Possible Worlds Encore: 20 & 21 April 2012

constant glimmers of hope, escape routes and pathways to human dignity.”

If you missed it during Mental Health Awareness Week – now is your chance to get along to reTHiNK Possible Worlds for the encore performances at The Basement Theatre. Performance poetry, dance, film and music tell the story of several characters as they navigate the maze of life and rethink their possible worlds.

Theatre review called it “Well padded and full. It was like eating a good meal: not so much that we are sore, not so little that we are still hungry”

Don’t just think it is the same thing again though…

This time there is The New Worlds pre-show with some of Auckland’s up-and-coming performance artists including the winner of the youth Rising Voices poetry slam. Plus The Literatti’s invention The Time Machine becomes the newest member of the Possible Worlds cast.

What is The Time Machine? you ask. The Time Machine is an interactive, video installation that allows you to super-impose real-time video of yourself into a projected visual landscape and manipulate the images. The Time Machine debuted at Splore in February, made its second appearance at First Thursdays in March and makes itself firmly at home among Auckland’s leading performance poets in April with reTHiNK Possible Worlds, the encore performance.

Tickets are $10 on the door. Find out more on Facebook if you swing that way!

All proceeds go towards fund-raising for The Literatti to take reTHiNK Possible Worlds to Melbourne in October for a Trans-Tasman Mental-Health Awareness Week event as part of The Like Minds Big reTHiNK.
