Hypothesis 1 is the first theatrical experiment brought to you by the newly formed collective Pacific Laboratory Theatre (PLab).
PLab was formed out of a desire to create contemporary Pacific works that are engaging, meaningful and challenging to the pacific theatre status quo.
Our emphasis is on experimentation with theatrical devices and form and really extend not only what stories we we tell as contemporary pacific practitioners, but also how we tell these stories.
This process has been about what content speaks to us and how we can shape that content to speak to you in an engaging and meaningful way.
Hypothesis 1 is a reaction of several pacific compounds (family, the past, religion, duty, the future), ground in Aotearoa and distilled through the urban New Zealand Samoan experience.
