How can those less well-off manage when they are pushed further and further to the edge?
We need more affordable housing but urban development, and renewal, has long been controversial. There is the displacement with the razing of neighbourhoods, usually described as slums. If you don’t regenerate urban areas does it mean you have to destroy wilderness and farmland?
Director Alex Bonham alongside Assistant Director Erica Kroger brings together the astonishing powerhouse of actors, Ellie Lim, Hannah Rice, and Simon Gilchrist to run An Extraordinary Meeting each night where audiences will decide the future of Auckland city.
This show combines verbatim theatre, participatory theatre and the happenings of Adrienne Dowell. It is inspired by the rituals, standing orders of real local councils that allow strangers to build trust and collaborate on impossibly hard decisions. Experts alive and dead will argue how cities work – but you must ask for whom and for what.
Every night, a different show.
Every night, a different solution.
