How to Make Friends And Still Appear Normal

Media Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SHOW “WORTH SEEING TWICE” FEATURES WELLINGTON COMPOSER

Black Sheep Productions presents:
HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS AND STILL APPEAR NORMAL
A theatrical choreography by Natalie Maria Clark

Let’s be honest: Being an adult involves far too many rules. People are a strange and wonderful bunch so you’re going to need to know how to deal with them. Yes, the prospect of human interaction is terrifying – but don’t you worry. From March 4 – 8, just sit there at BATS Theatre. We’ll do all the dancing and talking and stuff.

“… an incredibly well developed and mature concept … for somebody so young
… Clark’s talent across a range of mediums is manifest …”

Kate Sullivan

Following glowing reviews at The Body Festival in Christchurch, Black Sheep Productions makes a stop in Wellington, home to composer Emi Pogoni, for the 2013 New Zealand Fringe Festival.

Pogoni’s “stunningly compatible” soundtrack uses sounds such as ambient recordings of Lambton Quay to catapult viewers into a bizarre and restless urban world. The protagonist intersects this world as she recounts the certainty of childhood and figures out how to deal with ‘adult people’.

“… raw, evocative and humble …”
– The Press

“… endearing … poignant … funny … a thoughtful choreography”
– Linda Ashley

Black Sheep Productions is the pseudonym that Natalie Maria Clark choreographs under. Natalie and her collaborators, Sofia McIntyre and Sarah Elsworth, are all 2011 graduates of Unitec’s Performing and Screen Arts programme. How To Make Friends and Still Appear Normal has received Kakano funding from NZ Fringe Festival to present in Wellington.


NZ Fringe Festival runs 15 February to 9 March 2013. For more information visit www.fringe.co.nz

Duration: 50 minutes
Where: BATS Theatre, Wellington
Tickets: $18 Adult / $14 Concession / $12 Fringe Addict

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
