SILO 2018

SILO 2018

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

Silo Theatre’s 2018 season is all about work that celebrates the destruction of ideals and systems that no longer serve us. It’s one that examines the ways in which the person is political. They range from a fearless new gaze on contemporary desire to an unsettling portrait of one of the greatest defence lawyers in Aotearoa to a post-apocalyptic world where The Simpsons form our contemporary mythology.

This is theatre that flips the script on the status quo. It tears everything down, examines the rubble, and asks: what next?

Join us to look at the world from another perspective. Read more about the season here.
