Watch it, hear it, read it, stream it. Do it all at once. We’re all plugged in and wired up to the news and its ticker-tape is ticking all day and all night. But is all this news good for us?
Breaking News is an hour long multimedia devised performance filled with puppets, pop-up sets, live soundscapes and evocative video landscapes. The piece is a journey into our intimate surreality that asks us: when does information become too much information?
Breaking News by VaVaVoom Theatre Company was premiered at The National Theatre of Iceland in October 2012 and re-opened at Summerhall during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2013.
Music by acclaimed Icelandic artist, Soley.
