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
– Linda Ashley
