The Motorway is a 45 minutes solo performance based on the story The Southern Thruway by Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar, about a group of people who get stuck in a traffic jam for days. In this setting, the characters unfold and develop various relationships of cooperation thus reflecting small societal groupings and their whereabouts. Although the story was created within a different cultural setting, it resonates with an Aotearoa/New Zealand context as it addresses topical and current issues, challenges today’s fast pace life and celebrates human connection that cuts across cultures, demonstrating shared humanity. This play is interdisciplinary in nature; an amalgamation of storytelling techniques, physical theatre, stylized choreography, and a bilingual text. By using Spanish and English languages and a Latin American text, The Motorway opens the performance to a wider audience with different cultural backgrounds, reflecting the diverse society of Dunedin and Aotearoa/New Zealand.
