Silo Theatre are trekking to Northland to bring you Every Brilliant Thing!
From the acclaimed producers of Hudson and Halls Live! Silo Theatre brings the international sensation, Every Brilliant Thing, to Whangārei and the Hokianga for a strictly limited season. Starring the multi-talented Jason Te Kare, Ngāti Maniapoto, Tainui (Cellfish, Pop Up Globe).
You’re seven years old. Dad’s picked you up late from school. He tells you that Mum’s done something stupid: that she’s hurt herself because she’s so sad. You start to write a list. It’s a list of every brilliant thing in the world. Years pass, decades disappear, the world evolves, and the list takes on a life of its own — because there are plenty of brilliant things in the world, if you just know where to look.
Every Brilliant Thing is a warm, deep hug: a story about depression, loss, and discovering all the beautiful moments in life — whether it’s ice-cream, bumper boats, stuffing from a hangī, or peeing in the sea when nobody knows.
Directed by one of Aotearoa’s biggest talents, Danielle Cormack (Wentworth, Shortland Street), with design from the award-winning Rachel Marlow and Leon Radojkovic, Every Brilliant Thing comes to Northland following an Auckland season of countless standing ovations.
