Free Theatre presents 'I Sing the Body Electric'.
Devised and Directed by Peter Falkenberg.
In association with HIT Lab NZ (Human Interface Technology Laboratory).
Based on the infamous Don Juan legend, I Sing the Body Electric is a live exploration of the seductive nature of technology in modern life. Developed out of Free Theatre's 2011 work-in-progress Passion, Pulse and Power, I Sing the Body Electric explores the latest interactive technology through movement and sound.
The sterile and electrically charged set situates the audience in the centre of a dark jungle of electrical cords. Revolving around the audience is the journey of two sailors who are seduced and destroyed by a succession of aerial females, each embodying a different technology, and each representing a different male fantasy.
This production is brought to you with the support of Creative New Zealand and the University of Canterbury's Theatre and Film Studies Department.
Cash bar available on site from 7.30pm.
