A huge collaboration between some of New Zealand's most dynamic performers in their field; the stars align from April 2nd, as Massive Company join forces with NZTrio, playwright Gary Henderson and musician Chris O’Connor in the multi-faceted My Bed My Universe, playing Auckland’s Concert Chamber and Mangere Arts Centre.

Honouring the people, soundscapes and places that make us who we are and shape the worlds we live in, My Bed My Universe is rooted in the rhythms of the everyday riffs of New Zealand. A genre-busting, eye-opening theatrical event that roams the perplexing space between the moments we wake and the moment we return to our beds to sleep, it’s layered with original live music, surprising sonic mixes, melodic vocalisation and beautiful physical theatre.

Thematically, My Bed My Universe is the most collaboratively ambitious project that Massive Company has chosen to undertake in the 22 years that Artistic Director Sam Scott, MNZM, has worked with emerging and professional artists.

My Bed My Universe - is about our place in our world, whatever we think that is. This premise evolves to become a dynamic and unique collision of the physical location that anchors us and the definitive roles that we play. Each actor represents one individual or many people – stemming from the ideas and notions Massive gathered through a pool of Q&A’s submitted by not only cast members but those outside of the group.

"My story is written in laughter and strife, if you know how to read it you can see my whole life"

This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience doesn’t limit itself on the stage either – as My Bed My Universe will frequent the information superhighway through an exclusive website, featuring webisodes throughout the run up to opening night created in collaboration with the Filth Collective (the force behind music videos by bands such as The Checks).

My Bed My Universe is another milestone for Massive Company – come enter their galaxy of talent and witness one of the company’s most collaboratively ambitious projects yet! It’s a big bang moment.

Featuring: Dominic Ona-Ariki, Tuyet Nguyen, Max Palamo, Neil Amituanai, Wesley Dowdell, Miriama McDowell, NZTrio (Justine Cormack, Ashley Brown, and Sarah Watkins).
