Theatre Trip - Wasteland

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME

Gary Clarke’s WASTELAND looks at how two generations coped in the 90’s, an era of radical upheaval. As we see one generation grind to a halt, we follow the next into the 90’s illegal rave scene, where derelict warehouses and abandoned work spaces became home for a new-found community of music and dance.

Bringing together Clarke’s vivid physical dance language performed by a company of exceptional dancers, a community cast of male singers, brass musicians, archive film footage, a powerful rave soundscore and unique artwork by Jimmy Cauty (co-founder of The KLF), WASTELAND dives head first into a gritty story of loss, hope, escapism and survival.

Fancy coming along to the theatre, or want to bring a group of young people? Please email don@curiousmonkeytheatre.com or call 07984100825.

Carers or social workers are also welcome to attend and can make enquiries on behalf of a young person. All the sessions are staffed by a friendly team of experienced youth and drama workers who are ready to support and listen to your ideas. Tickets to the theatre are free for participants.

The music is always present, you just have to hear it.

What makes us who we are? Do the choices in our lives determine who we become? Are we in control of our own story, or is it in our DNA?
