Ice Floe Productions proudly presents the STAB season of:


A woman, a man, and a penguin – theatre of the Antarctic

Sometimes extreme conditions push you to the extremes.

It’s 1999 and a husband and wife scientific team hunker down inside a
tiny, tightly packed survival capsule on the Ross Ice Shelf, wintering
over in the vast frozen Antarctic, accompanied by only web-cam, sporadic
radio contact, the amazing Aurora Australis, and a colony of male
Struggling to maintain a failing relationship, Stella (Kate Prior)
observes breeding patterns among Emperor penguins, while John (Aaron
Cortesi) monitors climate change – until the untimely introduction of a
third character (Brian Hotter) blows their fragile world apart. Life in
the hut takes one dark turn after another, caught live on ‘cam’ in an
explosive climax where only two of the three will come out alive, just in
time to witness the first vivid streaks of light as it dawns on the
beginning of the endless day.

Echoing the real restrictions of life in the Antarctic and in the dynamic
spirit of a STAB show, HEAT will use self-sustainable energy means -
powered off-grid with lights, sound and electronics from low drain and/or
renewable energy. The production will look, as the Antarctic stations are
increasingly doing, to partnerships with companies developing sustainable,
renewable power sources.

Featuring music by recent CNZ Antarctic Fellow Gareth Farr, HEAT opens a
rare glimpse into the extraordinary isolated experience of being an
Antarctic scientist, being a human pushed to the extremes, and of the
sheer beauty of a winter in the Antarctic.
