The Colony stories stretch from pre-colonial times to the 22nd century, and will be released over several years.

Our individual works linking into the Colony narrative include Laka, When the Tide Comes In and A Counting and Cracking. All of these productions can be appreciated as individual works, but following Colony will give you additional perspectives and storylines.
