Head

October

About

A giant beautifully crafted four metre Head wakes up on stage, he has no body - yet thinks he is important.
He tells us he is a fake, created months before the audience even came into the theatre and yet, ironically, after telling us he’s not real he enters into an increasingly intimate relationship with the audience.
He has two servants, a gorilla and a headless person. We watch as his ego grows out of control and his cruelty towards them increases.
HEAD was a STAB commission

"…it's obviously not your average night out when a gorilla gives you a vanilla ice cream."

NZ Herald

"…a mind-bending multimedia show."

National Business Review

"…at times teasingly opaque, often funny, and always stimulating...this entertaining and engaging journey into the mind of the HEAD is well worth taking"

Laurie Atkinson / The Dominion Post

"When you hear gasps of astonishment around you in a theatre, then realise one of them was your own, you know that what you are seeing is something remarkable."
