Suitcase Show – development showing
PRESENTED BY Trick of the Light Theatre
Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder, Tröll, The Griegol) are renowned for crafting inventive shows and intricate narratives. They are building their latest work, Suitcase Show, through a series of modular work-in-progress showings. After outings at Lōemis and NZ Fringe, join them at TAHI Festival as they unpack another story.
Suitcase Show is inspired by ideas of lone and lonely travellers, of carrying your home, and of odysseys of travel in a post-pandemic world. The tone is dark and spiky, the aesthetic is diverse. Previous showings have ranged from from lo-fi light and shadowplay to wireless projection, from a departure lounge dance between two disembodied hands to a narrated story that crackles from a 1970s stereo suitcase.
