Description

Taigé Lauren presents one woman's journey to find what makes an American. But where does this journey begin? History? Personal experience? Culture? Politics? Religion? As she travels west, to the land of tomorrow, she digs further into the past where she meets unlikely strangers, becomes part of the nation's origin stories and eventually finds the dark heart of it all. Searchers explores the traumas of the past and the possibilities of the future through characters, poetry and rock'n'roll and asks if the answers to our future are in a past we've forgotten or don't want to remember.

We saw this show last night. It was an energetic performance by Taigé, featuring great songs along her journey. She has a fantastic voice and presence on stage. The band were excellent and provided great support.

There are just three nights left to catch this little gem so, if you don’t seize the opportunity, you’ll only have yourselves to blame. Get on down to Rose Street and share the experience. You won’t regret it.

Voice Mag (5/5 stars) 118 days ago

The performance had ethereal and entrancing moments where you were pulled into the character’s story, empathetic to her experiences and understood the perspective and the wider societal ideology being conveyed. The music helped add to the atmosphere. The show was both a musical, a rock-opera, a biopic, and an acted performance. If you like musicals, if you like theatre, if you like spoken-word or poetry, if you go to gigs or if you like rock or punk or any kind of music go watch this show. If you want a show that is earnest and electric, whilst in a more comfortable and accessible gig format, then go see this show. Really, there are few examples of why you shouldn't go see this show!
