Jason Wright: AGE - AUDIOEmbedded audio
See details ➔
Directed by Ross McCormack, AGE embraces McCormack's distinctive style of visceral and virtuosic performance making. The world premiere of AGE took place at the New Zealand Festival.
AGE echoes families and lovers hanging off of each other, inside three generations. A young boy’s delightful incomprehension of what awaits is set against an inevitable quest for dominance. Human curiosity and power is explored, utilising a physical and metaphorical language that slips between definitions - maybe he's the dad, she's the daughter, he's the grandson, but maybe not.
AGE explores the connections, trust and curiosity intrinsic to all our relationships, and our an endless compulsion to compare, remember and claim our place.
Commissioned and presented by the 2014 New Zealand Festival with funding assistance from Creative New Zealand.
