YE GODS! is a new show by the Whalley Range All Stars. It features a model town which three god-like figures gradually bring to life with a witty use of objects that are placed inside buildings and which trigger appropriate sound effects.
Church bells ring out, a factory grinds into action, there’s a boozy sing-along in the pub and the local dog’s home can’t stop its inmates barking at the church bells.
By the time these three have finished the entire tiny town is humming with noise and life.
HOWEVER. All is not rosy in this world. The 3 performers are not sentimental and are quite willing to undo what they have built up. A scene of destruction inflicted by a rogue weather pattern ensues. The audience look down on all this. However all is not lost, something is reborn from this miniature disaster area and thus the cycle carries on. YE GODS! features striking visuals, a vivid sound installation, sardonic wit, random acts of tenderness, eruptions of irresponsibility and a micro-apocalypse.
