Tour Information
The Gaps Between

Electric cello, and heartbreak

Music and performance by Sebastian Morgan-Lynch; Additional writing by Tara Lee; Additional Music: Daniel Lynch and Robin Perks; Video and photography: Tim Henwood Lighting: Martyn Roberts

Chapman Tripp Theatre Award-winning sound designer, cellist and writer Sebastian Morgan-Lynch presents The Gaps Between, a solo performance that weaves soaring cello, Wellington time-lapse photography, live digital soundscapes and original fiction into an exploration of the gaps between people, and the things they do to make it across. The Gaps Between traces an emotional arc through stories about dreams of dogs, angels and shadows and leaping out of the sky; wrapped in gorgeous music and bathed in light.

Sebastian has been playing cello and composing soundscapes and music for theatre since 1999. He has received Chapman Tripp awards for ‘In Flame’ and ‘Speer’, as well as working with cutting edge theatre companies Jealous and afterburner and playing with legendary Wellington bands Flight of the Conchords and Fat Freddy’s Drop. For this one night show he is reunited with collaborator Martyn Roberts, winner of multiple Chapman Tripp awards for lighting and devised theatre. Sebastian and Martyn worked closely on the Man on The Moon and The Telescope in the early 2000’s, establishing afterburner’s minimalist theatre aesthetic. Tim Henwood has been collaborating with Sebastian since 2014, creating sweeping glitched-out timelapse and colourfields which a critic described as a ‘long, variegated visual poem’.

It premiered at Kokomai Festival in 2015 and was called ‘mesmerising’, and had a successful season at Circa Theatre in Wellington in 2016. A critic said of the Wellington show that it was ‘cathartic, and transcendant… I will remember this performance for years to come.’
