Pat-a-cake Productions present… Bus Ticket for this year’s epic Fringe Festival, 25-28th February, 7.30pm ON A BUS!! After their successful season of What Goes Up… at Bats Theatre, Pat-A-Cake brings their theatre into your daily life by taking it out of the theatre and onto a bus!

Where did we get our bus etiquette? No talking. No eye contact. No engagement beyond a judgement of the wardrobe choices around you. Shuffle I-pod, sneak a selfie for Snap chat, and update your twitter – anything to avoid eye contact with the pregnant lady struggling her pram. The choice to disengage creates a community that marvels over digital culture at the expense of real human contact.

A space we forget to share, buses are a snapshot of our daily Wellington community.
Bus ticket engages with this community and their interactions or lack thereof, on that daily bus rush that we all recognize. It is a devised interactive experience that verges on promenade – it will be a ride not to miss!

Pat-a-Cake Productions (Thin Skin Fringe 2013) aims to create visceral and playful work that speaks to our community’s sense of empowerment. The material of the show comes from the devisers’ honest and personal experiences in our Wellington community. This relevant and truthful process allows the audience to share and invigorate their sense of individual responsibility for their community.

Prepare to be moved as a part of this site-specific work that reminds us how to share with the people in front of us. It’s a delightfully devised show that is spontaneous, surprising and an enjoyable ride for all.

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.
