Hiatus Next Wave Festival 2012

Hiatus

Hiatus is a live performance work propelled by recent and ongoing natural disasters. Assertions that we are now experiencing “the beginnings of a new kind of future in which mega-disasters are going to be more frequent” are both subject and inspiration of artists’ Fiona Bryant and Lucy Farmer’s performance – a guided bus tour to the edge of the earth. This is a bus tour with a difference. Its destination is purposely imprecise. One performer is sensibly riding the bus; the other is fervently running…all the way. Hiatus is a bold and refulgent offering for a broken world and uncertain future.
