For half the world the day begins, for half the world the day ends. Here.
Taking reference from the remarkable story of Adelaide woman Gill Hicks, who lost her legs in the 2005 London bombings, Thursday explores the fundamental question of what it means to be human.
Beautiful and fragmented, this collaboration between Brink Productions (Adelaide) and English Touring Theatre (London) is poetic and ambitious in form and content. It layers dreams with reality, compassion with devastation, and identity with loss to build a deeply woven picture of humanity.
At the click of a finger, the lives of strangers are both knitted together and blown apart. Flawed and self-absorbed existences float in and around an Australian woman at the centre, who finds herself confronted by an horrific reality. Through this moment, Thursday unravels time to reveal the strands of unconditional love that bind us all, as strangers, together.
