AN INTERSTELLAR ADVENTURE AWAITS WITH Q THEATRE’S NEW ORIGINATE WORK
Push Me Away, Pull Me Closer combines physical theatre with edgy dialogue to explore the opposing forces governing our lives – darkness/light; depression/exhilaration; reaching for the stars/plummeting to their depths – enlivened with dodgy space games and flights of stellar fantasy!

On the way the ensemble shares what they have discovered about Black Holes, the Big Suck Theory, the Explosive Deaths of Stars and the accumulation of junk in Space.

This new work was created by the 2019 Originate Ensemble and produced as part of Q Theatre’s Workshop series. The work aims to bring emerging theatre makers and musicians together to collaborate and create a new show about the here and now. Guided by director Margaret Davis, the group has dreamt a new performance from the ground up. A performance defined by the thoughts, beliefs, hopes and fears of the ensemble.

Radio Astronomer Nicholas Ralph supported the development of the work by providing key facts on the science behind the troupe’s journey.

The Originate Ensemble seeks to up-skill early-career artists in the areas of new work development, cross art form practice and to facilitate new collaborations.

As part of the Q Theatre’s stunning new work series, Push Me Away, Pull Me Closer is showing from 24-27 July at The Joan. Come along to question, learn and unlearn.
