We Should Practice presents Providence, a new work by Louise Tu'u. Raw, ambiguous and quietly deafening, Providence plays old videos, writes letters to the audience and is a spectator in its own work. Maybe.
With Regan Taylor (This Is Not My Life, Flintlock Musket) and Lara Fischel-Chisholm (The Continental Monologues: Africa, Sexy Recession Show), the world of Providence is complete with sound and set design by Chris O'Connor (SJD) & Nooroa Tapuni (Glitch, Re-trieved).
In 2005, playwright, actor and director Louise Tu'u was the first New Zealand playwright to be awarded the Royal Court International Theatre Residency in London. Presenting her first play, Le Tauvaga (The Competition) led her to continue writing and directing a number of short films. Providence is her second play.
As eight councils become unified, the populace looks on, wondering when Providence will come to them.
