Wellington company Imaginaries Theatre brings joy to the stage with a focus on sustainability and accessibility. Paper Jam premieres at BATS Theatre from 25 to 29 January and has a NZSL interpreted performance at 6pm on Thursday 27 January. $12 Access Ticket for Deaf and disabled patrons!
Sal is stuck in a rut. A boring cycle of get up, go to work, go home, go to sleep. Up, work, home, sleep. Upworkhomesleepupworkhomesleep. Her job is an endless sea of pointless data entry and double handling. Every day the same. Every day adulting. Every. Day. D U L L.
Until her thought-to-be-long-gone childhood friend, Biscuit, shows up out of the blue. They’re a trouble maker. A fun maker. They're unpredictable, wild and ... Imaginary. Is this really happening? Has Sal finally had too many cups of coffee? Why have they come back now? Jamming together animation, immersive scenography, physical theatre and music, this play-filled adventure merges fantasy with reality in a wacky exploration of imaginary friends.
Led by VUW Te Herenga Waka MFA postgrad students Anna Barker, Belinda Campbell and Rebekah de Roo, Paper Jam puts accessibility at the forefront with NZSL interpretation, integrated audio description, wheelchair access and a relaxed performance. This female-led creative team prioritises accessibility and sustainability in their practice and invite practitioners and audiences alike to consider doing the same.
"BIGGER THAN AMAZING. YOUR BRAIN WILL PROBABLY EXPLODE, BUT IT WILL GROW BACK WITH SUPER POWERS CAUSE THIS IS SOOO GOOD IT’S THE BEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN” - Biscuit
