Utopiate

It is with much excitement that we announce our newest production Utopiate, a humorous and heart-warming odyssey following an intergalactic mission to escape the pain and suffering found on Earth.

There are three sessions available and we have been offered the possibility of a fourth show if we can sell 75% of tickets well in advance.

We are so proud of the work our cast has done on this ambitious new show. It is important to us that they experience a four show season, and the opportunity to reach more audiences. The Rebus team would really appreciate it if you could book as soon as possible so that we can reach that target. 

We’d also appreciate it if you could spread the word amongst your networks and friends.

A silhouetted figure in a spacesuit stands looking out at an abstracted, sci-fi landscape made up of thousands of light blue lines intersecting across a dark background. There are points of illuminated red and orange particles in the top left corner. The abstract scene and the figure are mirrored on the reflective surface of the floor.

Running time: 60 minutes, no interval

With seemingly good intentions, a group of aliens introduce humans to a pain-free planet, with unexpected results. Is this world without pain as attractive as it sounds? Can we truly experience growth and love without adversity?

Join Rebus’s cast of disabled actors, and actors with lived experience of mental ill health as they journey through the stars.

Utopiate explores the experiences, challenges, and voices of the cast through an audio-visual feast amalgamating dialogue with physical theatre, soundscapes (live and recorded), and audio-visual design.

Utopiate was created through Rebus Theatre’s Flair program, which invites the diverse cast to take the next step in their professional practice and creatively explore social issues through metaphor.
