Paradise Now

A stunning piece of contemporary theatre. A homage to world cultures, the earth and hope. Music, immersive images, poetry and movement combine.  A previous version of this show was reviewed as: “Most daring, engrossing. A mesmerising, esoteric one hour performance  charting  the human journey, in particular the female journey, from the primordial right up to some imaginings of what the future may hold. Geoff Sykes splashes onto a silk curtain  a vast, diverse range of images,  featuring some great spectacular nature shots … Extracts from literature and religious texts from time memorial and an atmospheric score adds to a sense of wonder ” Sydney Arts Guide.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream comes to Wiley Park Amphitheatre, home of Horizon Theatre Co. The dream is Shakespeare’s invitation to sit back and enjoy the spectacle of a magical spirit realm toying with spellbound mortals. We are able to delight in the caracter’s only partial awarness of the drama earnestly pursuing their desires, whilst the spirit realm assumes control. But is anyone really in charge, or is it just their imagination, the vision of a dream?

Shakespeare Secret and Push-up clowns
