'Community Notices' Notice

‘Community Notices’ Notice

Nelson’s own Off the Cuff improvised theatre ensemble present a new work in a new venue with a new Artistic Director. ‘Community Notices’ is a slice-of-life celebration about Nelson people and events as inspiration unfolds live on stage from ideas plucked from Nelson notice boards and local papers.

The show this Friday is for anyone who’s ever helped a neighbour, hired a babysitter, gone to a hobby group or conservation meeting, or responded to a request to find a missing pet. Come, recognise and celebrate the many personalities that make up Nelson. Stories, characters and laughs guaranteed!

Off the Cuff’s new Artistic Director is a recent import from Sydney, Linda Calgaro. After performing at the Nelson Fringe Festival in May last year Linda was inspired to shift to Nelson. Calgaro who is an acclaimed actor, writer and director, has been improvising for over 10 years in Australia and overseas.

In an effort to learn more about her new-found home and to experience all that the region has to offer, Calgaro found herself reading the community notices and was inspired by the loves, lives and idiosyncrasies of the local community.

“You get a really interesting snapshot of people’s lives reading the community notices” says Calgaro, “and what better inspiration for an improv show!”.

Calgaro is also excited about bringing the show to the Suter Theatre for the first time. “The Suter Theatre provides for a more intimate experience and the ability for our improvisers to be able to engage with the audience more directly. It’s a wonderful space”.

Community Notices is this Friday 24 March at 7.30pm at the Suter Theatre. Tickets are available from http://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2017/off-the-cuff-improv-present-community-notices/nelson or on the door.

Ever wondered how we make it all up? Stay for a brief Q&A after the show.

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
