The Black Orchid Paradisa
By Anjula Prakash
Music by Kent Mori
An eclectic group of misfits including a barman, a cashier, two ghosts, and a God, recall stories of their past in a supernatural, fantastical, and music filled night.
Our storytellers reside in the old resort “The Village,” which was abandoned during its development due to the coup d'etat of 1987. All that remains is a Backpackers and a painfully tacky faux Fijian village reminiscent of Gilligan’s Island and a club on a slow night. It is a tourist trap, a wasteland, and a goldmine for forgotten stories.
Rina's Cleaning Service brings to you a development season of this new work based on real events from the beating heart of Fiji. Through Fijian, Indian, and Western perspectives, the different facets of Fijian culture and mythologies are explored in this poetic and imaginative new work.
Presented as part of Auckland Fringe festival from 21st February - 12th March 2017.
