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

HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS AND STILL APPEAR NORMAL When: 4th – 8 th March, 6:30pm
Duration: 50 minutes
Where: BATS Theatre, Wellington
Tickets: $18 Adult / $14 Concession / $12 Fringe Addict
