STAGE AND COSTUME DESIGN AND MAKING
Watch it, hear it, read it, stream it. Do it all at once. We’re all plugged in and wired up to the news and its ticker-tape is ticking all day and all night. But is all this news good for us?
VaVaVoom takes its audience into an inventive and original world of puppets, pop-up sets, live soundscapes and evocative video landscapes. This multimedia devised performance is a journey into our intimate surreality that asks us: when does information become too much information? Music by acclaimed Icelandic artist, Soley.
Breaking News was premiered at The National Theatre of Iceland in October 2012 and re-opened at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2013.
