Daybreak Estate

No longer available

Herald Theatre, Aotea Centre


Daybreak Estate is a joyful, challenging, and thought-provoking dance-theatre work, described by audiences as “haunting and charming”, “wildly clever” and “hilarious in a somewhat devastating way”.

Choreographer, Jessie McCall’s interweaving of dance, theatre, and performance design makes for a unique work that is refreshingly indefinable, peppered with laugh-out-loud humour and sheer delight.

Trapped in a decaying wellness retreat, the performers are equal parts social elite and primal pack, disconnected from the earth, yet face down in the mud. Self-healing and self-destruction intertwine as bottles are popped and seeds are planted.

Book your ticket, pour a glass of cheap champagne, and allow yourself to be pulled into an intimate dance with your own vulnerability, because this is a plush party on a sinking ship.
