Lobsters (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Monday 15th October 2018

Inspired by the work of the surrealist painters, Lobsters is a story about love, and a way we must peel away our shells to find our authentic selves.

Lobsters fuses invigorating contemporary dance with the eccentric and humorous story of a lobster who was once Salvador Dali’s muse. She tells of her rise and fall, from celebrity artistic icon to washed-up cabaret singer, and observes with irony two young lovers (inspired by the famous painting of René Magritte) who struggle to connect their idealized image of love with reality.

Choreographer Lucy Marinkovich combines talents with Athens-Wellington-NYC based theatre maker Miranda Manasiadis, to bring you the athletic and visually compelling Lobsters.

“...bawdy, sensual, glamorous, dirty, beautiful, and melancholic cabaret of ruminations on love, sex, and longing.” THEATREVIEW

“...intense, physical, compelling...” DEIRDRE TARRANT
