Everybody Cool Lives Here like to play with arts practitioners and community groups to create work that share New Zealand stories.

At the beginning of 2014 we introduced youth to a black box theatre and techniques to begin to develop and share their own stories. The resulting show was Wake Up Tomorrow and the four day season was a sell out success. The show evolved and went onto sweep the 2015 NZ Fringe Festival receiving critical acclaim and winning six awards including Best Ensemble, Performer, Director and Best Show.

After the success we approached our team of young creators and asked if they wanted to make another large scale work, or create a professional show. They chose the money, so we auditioned for roles and began devising what became our five-hander No Post on Sunday.

Throughout the process we were realising that the productions could challenge audiences perceptions but a greater outcome was the growth happening within the individuals we were supporting. Our next step was to further develop the creative voices and leaders that had begun to emerge. We divided to conquer, developing two solos which we've presented to Auckland and Wellington audiences.

With our eyes set on touring and getting to the wider world beyond our base in Wellington, we're ready to break out of the fringes and blow the minds of the mainstream.
