A faux foreign film live on stage.
From the multi-award winning team behind IT’S DARK OUTSIDE, THE IRRESISTIBLE, NEW OWNER, and ALVIN SPUTNIK comes a deeply romantic visual extravaganza that will reignite your love of humanity.
Somewhere in the northern seas lies the small island nation of Sólset. Once a thriving metropolis, a decades-long drought has plagued the community and only a hopeful few remain.
A faux foreign film performed live each night, Perth theatre makers The Last Great Hunt combine cinematic mastery and theatrical magic to tell interwoven stories of love in a world that’s falling apart.
Premiering at Perth Festival 2019, Lé Nør [the rain] invites the audience to witness both the onscreen story and the behind-the-scenes action in a nostalgic celebration of everything worth fighting for.
