Days of the Bold and the Restless


We’re ordinary people living ordinary lives
We’re lying to our husbands and we’re cheating on wives
Since we’ve only got one life to live, in joy or tragedy
Won’t you spend these bold and restless days with me!

ALIEN BABIES ARE TOTALLY NORMAL

From the Writer of SEDUCTOBOT and Co-Creator of SONG SALE, WINNER of Best Music at the DUNEDIN FRINGE FESTIVAL 2012, comes a brand new musical soap opera, DAYS OF THE BOLD AND THE RESTLESS!

Coma patients! Dastardly experiments! Extraterrestrials! Illicit affairs! Murder and betrayal!

Death and roller skates! Every weeknight of the Fringe, join us for a brand new episode of the most surreal musical soap opera to hit the stage. For 15 nights, you can tune in to your favourite soap with a twist.

ALL IS NOT SUNNY IN SUNNY VALLEY...

Spanning fifteen individual episodes, DAYS OF THE BOLD AND THE RESTLESS will run the duration of the 2013 FRINGE FESTIVAL. A cast of over 25 performers bring to life an array of colourful characters, including a seductive surgeon with a penchant for playing with brains, a charming investigative journalist who uncovers a shocking secret about his closest friend, a bartender with a crippling jaywalking addiction and a wedding caterer hopelessly in love with an indecisive bride-to-be.

Our talented pianist Sam (play it again!) accompanies the drama with over 30 ORIGINAL SONGS, an impressive feat that no human should ever attempt.

SO MANY STORIES ARE IN STORE...

The cast and crew of DAYS OF THE BOLD AND THE RESTLESS bring a wealth of experience and talent in live performance, film production/performance, production management and prop/costume construction. Members of our team have worked and performed with SPEAKEASY THEATRE, INDUSTRIAL BURLESQUE COLLECTIVE, PORIRUA LITTLE THEATRE, ADVENTURE WELLINGTON, WHITIREA PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE and QUITE SENSIBLE THEATRE. Also on board are members of ZEMI COSTUMING AND DESIGN, KANONBROSTV PRODUCTIONS, WELLINGTON MAKER SPACE and HYDRA ENTERTAINMENT.

Starting Monday February 18, a brand new episode premieres every weeknight at 6.30pm at Underworld (152 Vivian St), culminating in a thrilling finale Friday March 8.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
