Into The Light will also be performed at The Black Box Theatre in Nambour, on 5, 6 & 13 May.
This show is designed for theatre goers 16+.
Sunshine Coast-based multicultural contemporary theatre company D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective will make their Brisbane debut as part of Anywhere Festival 2023, with a thought-provoking show about consumerism and social media.
Directed by Cesar Genaro and performed by Daniela Lavorenti, Mary Eggleston, and Megan O’Hare, Into the Light is a story about connections, disconnections, choice and freedom. In an immersive physical theatre soundscape, the show takes the audience on a poetic journey into the world of consumerism and social media, following the adventures of three allegorical characters who are lured in and out of their cyber cave by the controlling power of the goddess Google. There is only one ticket out of the place where human reality is virtualised and virtual reality humanised. Who is going to take it?
Inspired by Plato’s Allegory of the Cave and Greek mythology, Into the Light mixes physical theatre, dance, philosophy, literature, visual arts, music and digital media. It delves into consumerism, cyberculture, self-esteem, identity and acceptance themes, and presents a metaphor for the social media generation we live in: an epoch of split, parallel identities, where body and place are abandoned for beings of light and words to be created.
