PREVIEW Brighton Fringe: Bright Raven @ONCA Gallery

May 6, 2019

HOAX return to Brighton Fringe, following their award-winning show Hysterical in 2016’s Fringe, staging Bright Raven at ONCA Gallery on Tuesday 14, Wednesday 15, Friday 16 and Saturday 18 May 2019.

“IF we can’t imagine a positive future, how on earth could we possibly create one?” – Lucy Neal

That’s the question posed by Bright Raven. And she’s here to stir things up. Part interactive TED Talk, part televangelist and part self-help guru, Bright Raven is a playful interactive theatre show which challenges us to think outside the familiar doomsday scenario to create new narratives for the future of the planet.

Bright Raven is starting a revolution. Shaking up these turbulent times. A storm in a teacup. A collective washing of the brain. A comedic induction into a New World Order. And she wants YOU to join.

Inspired by questions about the stories we’re always told and seeking new visions of the future unencumbered by what we ‘know’, Bright Raven is an interactive theatre-rite performed by award-winning HOAX’s Flavia Bertram in collaboration with the audience, accompanied by an electronic soundscape played on a Launchpad Mini device worn on her body.

“Young people are asking questions about their futures and the prospects for the earth which generations of politicians have failed to address,” says Bright Raven performer and creator Flavia. “This comedic piece seeks to open imaginative pathways – for the creators and audience alike – to new future narratives and possibilities.”

ONCA was specially chosen as the venue for the show for its commitment to social and ecological change and creative arts and learning projects which ask questions about the big issues for our times.

“There’s nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns”…..Octavia Butler
