WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Nick's second full length solo show, Adventure/Misadventure explores why personal freedom and fulfilment seem - quite literally - to be over the next horizon. With true stories of intrepid travel versus tragi-comic attempts at nesting, Nick Field captures the struggle to negotiate expectations of success. Accompanied by a live musical score of puckish pop reworks performed largely with a harp, Adventure/Misadventure explores epic themes of freedom versus home in an exciting and unique form. Tales of crap jobs, geisha chasing and discoing monks are fused together to create a bittersweet journey between romanticism and reality and back again.
With direction from established performance maker Rachel Mars, and in collaboration with Nick Trepka (co-producer of Speech Debelle & Roots Manuva) as musical director, Adventure/Misadventure is a theatrical mixtape that is heartbreakingly funny and evocative.
