A sci-fi action romance. The last man in the universe searches for a new earth. Follow his journey traversing space, battling aliens, finding love and exploring new worlds to save humanity in this visual epic where cinema comes to the stage.
Omega Quest is a remount of a prototype which was performed as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2010. Tim Mager wrote, directed and composed this epic 'space opera' which sold out in the final weeks. Revolt Productions is honored to be a part of this re-staging as the shows essence, pays true homage to the art of visual storytelling.
Performed in the Revolt front room for one week only in this return season be sure not to miss out as seats are few.
'EVEN in their wildest dreams, the 17th century creators of the Japanese puppetry form bunraku could never have imagined their craft would one day depict creatures of outer space; but that's the beauty of The Omega Quest. With puppeteers swathed in black manipulating objects in full view of the audience, we witness a mute tale of tragedy and triumph after the destruction of the Earth in the far future. It's a mix of puppetry and live action; our hero, an astronaut in search of New Earth, battles telepathic aliens and a squid-like space monster before being reunited with his love. The show's creators have gone to great effort with their moulded space suits, detailed monsters and electronic gadgetry, resulting in an entertaining space opera'
