"...the clever transition from live to filmed action add greatly to the enjoyment of the piece."
"The Cottesloe scene was one of my favourites in the play - I was blown away how well live action and film were merged together to unique effect."
"Further technical wizardry is deployed in Mia Holton’s clever use of screen and video to take an actress off the stage and into the sea at Cottesloe Beach, the technical trick perfectly complementing the heart-swelling moment of family reunion."
"...excellent use of projections that merge seamlessly with the live action, add greatly to the mood."
A great wind completely blankets Perth with red dust. Some believe that an apocalypse looms. But for others a man and his young step-daughter, two strangers stranded in an airport lounge, young lovers in a hotel suite, a bride-to-be watching her white wedding disintegrate the storm might be a gift.
A stunning look at the ways in which we love, blame, connect, and find beauty in the chaos of our lives.
