What do you do when the world is ending? Party like it’s 1999!
Beginning at a party bubbling over with champagne-drinking fools who wilfully 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 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.
At The Farm, work is made in a collaborative process where everyone brings their expertise without being confined to it. All animals are equal.
