Saddle up for love, doormats and rock and roll...

A high paced two hander, devised and performed by two recent graduates of Toi Whakaari: New Zealand National Drama school Blinkers premieres at BATS Theatre on Feb 24 as part of Fringe 08.

Blinkers is an unlikely love story between two neighbours; a rock and roll nobody and a tidy lover of horses. A delightful peek into the private world of neighbours and their everyday oddities. We ask why it’s so difficult to communicate over the smallest distances?

Featuring Natalie Medlock (Arcadia) and Dan Musgrove (Angels in America), Blinkers explores the beauty that is found in the mundane, the everyday oddities of life.

“It’s the simplicity of horses and the driving rhythms of Patti Smith crammed into the tiniest apartments” says Medlock. “It’s ridiculous and perfect.”

Musgrove agrees, “It’s a peep hole into our living room idiosyncrasies. A microscope for the sweet -absurd irony of our everyday existence. We are strange creatures, let’s celebrate it and laugh!

Blinkers is an exciting new work by two up and coming New Zealand performers, and promises to be a funny, moving look at love.

24-28 Feb
8pm BATS Theatre, Kent Terrace
$16/$12/$10 or 04 8024175
