Destination: Death descends on the PumpHouse Amphitheatre for opening night of the Fringe, 27 February.
The five-night season features Regan Taylor in a solo performance blending choreography and character-based comedy.
Taylor physically tells the story of multiple characters in a rural community touched by unexpected deaths. Hamish Darion, the local check-out operator wishes to leave his small town for dance school in the city, but standing in his way is Macka, a hunter and local bully.
Will Macka’s next victim be Hamish, the stag he hunts, or his hunting buddy and local rugby hero, Twinkle-toes Joe?
Meanwhile Michael is coming to terms with a situation for which he is completely unprepared: losing his best mate in an accident. He has to deal with the funeral director who fancies himself as a comedian, the evangelical preacher of all religions and the demands of Mrs. Te Pae, his friend’s feisty mum.
Destination: Death was instigated by Taylor, who sought to directly confront a topic that is seldom talked about. He and director Craig Geenty workshopped the idea, concluding that a matter-of-fact approach to death had plenty of comic potential, and that choreography could express what is unknown or unspoken.
Please note: this is an outdoor show.
