READ, WATCH, LISTEN: Moonbridge At The Fringe Festival
I love theatre that takes me into an alternate reality and Moonbridge looks exactly that. Plus, it starts tonight so is a perfect way to start your weekend (last performance Saturday night – so get in quick!).
Moonbridge, part of the Fringe Festival, is an evocative ensemble theatre piece using movement and voice, designed to take the audience on a very unexpected journey.
It has been described as “A story of love, loss and a little bit of wackiness”.
It is set in the Auckland War Memorial Museum and centres around a new exhibition called ‘The Museum of Broken Relationships’ from Zagreb, and how it curiously intrudes on the lives of everyone around it. The story centres on Pedro, the museum’s archivist, who is deep in the heartbreak from the sudden death of his beloved wife. With the moon as a recurring theme, the audience follows Pedro shifting from a life of loss into a new life, with help from the provocative and wild museum-dwellers. Moonbridge intertwines fantasy and reality with the exhibits becoming real.
This is not your typical ‘play’ but will be an unforgettable one-hour experience, brought to life on stage with movement, voices in many languages and humour, drama, and much, much more. The performers come from dance, theatre, acrobatics, circus, opera, cabaret, so anything is possible!
