The Ninth Wave | The Farm (AUS)

What do you do when the world is ending? Party like its 1999!

Beginning at a party bubbling over with champagne-drinking fools who willfully ignore the warning signs of the end of the world, The Ninth Wave unfolds as a journey of consequences and the young hope that always grows from it.

Against the stunning backdrop of the iconic beach at Surfers Paradise, The Ninth Wave is an apocalyptic narrative by The Farm.

Entwined with an original score composed and performed live by Ben Ely (Regurgitator), The Farm takes the ideas behind the 2016 Helpmann Award nominated The Last Blast to their fullest and most ominous end. This dance on a smoking volcano is the party to end all parties.

Recommended for ages 12+ years.

This event takes place on the beach. There is no wheelchair accessible viewing area available.

Commissioned by Bleach* Festival and City of Gold Coast.

Produced by Bleach* Festival.
