SEEyD’s new production is a compelling environmental, political, romantic comedy relevant to all Wellingtonian’s. Based
on the current proposed Makara wind turbines, TURBINE gives this controversial issue a balanced airing.
Mark Lachlan from the electricity company visits the self-sufficient Gusten household in Ohaunui to complete his
consultation process before seventy turbines are erected in their ‘backyard’. At first the family are united in their
opposition to the project, but a family secret, erotic fiction, an autistic son, global warming and a most unlikely love
story combine to crack their resolve.
Over three months SEEyD has researched, devised and written a local comedy that explores a complex global issue. What
happens when a company that’s doing everything it can to save the environment can’t reconcile with an already
environmentally conscious family?
“Power, speed, economy; blades cutting up, transforming nothing – wind – into power; into heat and light, sending energy
into the heart of this beautiful land.”
“We’re the Saudi Arabia of wind” - Mark Lachlan
“SEEyD has produced some of the most inventive theatre seen in Wellington over recent years”.
- Harry Ricketts, The Listener The Brilliant Fussah
" Yet again a small, independent, project group has invested its talents on spec and produced an exquisite 80 minutes of
riveting theatre that deserves to be seen around the country and the wider world. Catch it if you can. "
- John Smythe, NBR review of The Remedy Syndrome
"In the annals of New Zealand Theatre there has been nothing quite like inSalt (2001), SEEyD (2000), and now SAnD, which
opened on Saturday…the most beautiful, moving and simplest piece of stage business I have seen in a very long time.
- Laurie Atkinson, Dom Post review of SAnD
