Until We Die will be a show that is lived in reverse. What we see at the start of the show is nothing more or less than the end of the story. As the audience enters, they will see a scene that is a disaster frozen at exactly the moment when the disaster or cataclysm hit. Then as the show begins to unfold, we go back in time, the onstage scenes will rebuild to as they were before the cataclysm. Who has never dreamed of going back to change the course of things and thus thwart the inevitable? Until We Die culminates in the joy and celebration that preceded the tragedy that the audience discovered entering the theatre. Beyond a concept that pushes artistic boundaries and an immersive staging rarely, if ever, encountered in a touring production, Until We Die will also push innovation on all technical fronts. Sets and costumes will be constructed mostly from recycled materials, saving on waste. Lighting will feature laser concepts that allow for architectural effects and the original musical score will be presented through a state-of-the-art surround sound design.
