Art and live performance lovers of New Zealand are invited to a resurrection like no other - at Auckland’s historic Victoria Theatre over two days; May 10th and 11th.

Supported by a formidable army of talent, prolific artist, writer and film maker AntGlyph - aka Anthony Piggott invites the audience to participate in a journey through the mind and life of the artist through film, live performance and music, with all three theatres in action for a marathon of 12 hours each day.

“Intimate scenes are witnessed, love is explored in graphic detail, passion is captured and smeared on the walls. This is an explosion of ideas… from a very troubled mind combined with an insight into human nature that goes beyond stating the obvious.”

The audience will each be able to experience their own unique journey through Ant’s imagination. Featuring a 90 minute rotating play - with six performances each day, thirteen performers playing 26 roles, art installations, screenings of films made by the Fledge collective over the last three years, live performances by Fledge musicians and much much more... whatever time you arrive, and whether you stay two hours or 12 we guarantee an experience like no other.

Giving Up tells the story of a boy who grows up in 1970’s Dunedin, who discovers more than he expects to about life and sexuality, at his older brother’s flat party. His journey is an inspirational but challenging and sometimes life threatening one, through the world via Hong Kong and Shanghai, ending in Manila in 2013. It deals with sexuality and art, love and loss, relationships and inner peace, drugs and rock and roll, youth, old age, and madness.

Directed by Tony Piggott, Produced by Sarah Burren.
