Arts Festival Dunedin presents the world première of the dual presentation of Beyond The Bright Black Edge of Nowhere and The Cube. These UK productions by Simon Wilkinson are both based on the same bizarre true story.

In 1959 eight high school students and their science teacher went into the Great Deep Basin Desert, USA, never to be seen again. Letters written by the students to their parents were all that was ever found of them, describing a journey to “the bright black edge of nowhere”. The letters were discovered in a black wooden cube fifty miles into the desert. Shrouded in mystery and an official cover-up,

Beyond The Bright Black Edge of Nowhere is a multi-media play using 1950s film footage, digital manipulation accompanied by a live soundtrack performed by Simon Wilkinson and Dunedin’s own Trevor Coleman.

Bright Black Edge calls into question the information we receive, the power and authority that we take for granted, and our sources of reassurance in the digital age. The performance lingers long after the audience leave the theatre.
