Go ahead… Pretend you don’t know who we are…

Suri Cruise and Shiloh Pitt-Jolie speak out for the first time

Wellington, New Zealand, February 24th-26th 2014 – A cleverly crafted piece of contemporary theatre by up and coming Auckland theatremakers comes to Puppies for Fringe.

Growing up in today’s hyperpublic world is tough, even when the whole world doesn’t know your name.

Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt speak out for the first time about life as only they know it.

Unsure of who they can trust, Suri and Shiloh seek an escape from the pressures of being themselves and ultimately discover how scathing, intimidating and exhilarating their watchers can be. It’s a train crash we know you’ve been longing to watch, and We Are Sailors Productions serves it up in this years Fringe Festival.

You are creeps. Give them your fullest attention.

“We want to explore the disturbingly twisted effects that fame, notoriety and constant exposure can have on a child. Life has enough of a strange effect on most people, what happens when your life is a whirlwind of paparazzi flash bulbs?” asks Smith-Roy.

Adds Borwick, “Privacy is a thing of the past, and yet isolation is rampant. As young people reveal ever more of themselves they also seem to get a whole lot lonelier. This is a show about all young people."

We are Sailors Productions (Auckland) was formed in 2012 by several graduates of Unitec’s Acting Program. Their first work, ‘Feature Wall’ received great reviews as part of Short + Sweet 2013.

Phoebe Borwick and Susannah Smith-Roy have been involved in several television and theatre projects since graduating in 2011, working with companies such as Massive Theatre Company, Red Leap, and People who play with Theatre, as well as working on screen projects including TV’s .Shortland Street and Super City 2.

Written and performed by Phoebe Borwick and Susannah Smith-Roy Produced by Michael Craven

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
