“Where a girl’s measurement of determination and desire should far surpass that of her hips”

International model turned actress Sara Standring (covers Vogue, Marie Claire, billboard in Times Square) brings a unique, solo comedy based on her 6 years on the international modeling circuit. Straight from the 2005 Toi Whakaari Go Solo season and extended through popular demand comes this 50 minute romp into a Tokyo model apartment, with girls from across all corners of the globe (Ireland, England, Russia, USA) trying to make it in this strange and unforgiving world. A world where many are curios to peer into.

Directed by Vanessa Byrnes previous Fringe winner this is set to be a solo that is not to be missed. With hilarious characters like “Vodka Tits” and “Americas next top supermodel“ we take a leap through the comedy of the fashion world but also delve into the pressures and complexities of this bizarre industry and why the models need feeding in one form or another.

All the characters are based on real people Standring meet along the way this is the honest look from a kiwi girl’s perspective. Something that the television won’t show or tell you. Get the inside view from someone who lived it and is here to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.

“Deserved standing ovation” Capital Times.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
