Just how many times can one person shift houses, countries, lovers, jobs?

Building on a critically acclaimed season in 2004, shifting celebrates the contradictions and complexities in our constantly moving lives. It is theatre where boxes dance, realities blur and bus stops are a pick up joint.

Clare says: Understated funny. I love the Wellington wind.
