11 May 13 May Australia/Melbourne The Promise http://yirramboi.net.au/events/aryo/ Artist: Bethan Marlow Nation: Welsh UK Price ($): 10 - 20 Duration: 240 mins We can watch the news, donate to emergency aid and sign petitions. But what if we were in the middle of a war? What would you do if it were in your country? Would you flee? Would you attack? Or would you stay at home praying it’ll soon be over? There is no audience in this production. There’s no stage, no rehearsal, no actors - just thirty brave and curious players ready to face an almost real experience. The premise: For thousand of years three very different tribes have claimed the sacred land of Aryobrimi (meaning “The Promised Land”). They have all made an Aryo (meaning “a promise”) to their ancestors that they will never stop fighting for it. Aryo (the promise) is about literally walking in the shoes of someone who is desperate to claim back their ancestor’s sacred land. The future of their tribe is in danger. It is time for action. How far will you go to claim back your land? What will you endure to protect your tribe? There will be no weapons or combat in this fight. Tonight, it is time to find new actions towards a resolution. Anyone deciding to participate will step into a fictional world and play a speaking role.
