This Year I Will:

This Year I Will:
Enable next year to happen

Brought to you by Hannah Botha


This Year I Will: explores living in the moment vs. planning for the future. This enchanting one woman show follows Zoey’s quest to find the perfect balance while the never ending curveballs of life keep changing her mind. Join Zoey on the journey of deciding whether an exam mark is more important than turning off a light switch. This show will have you ticking off those lingering resolutions or changing them completely!

Also, before the show you will have the opportunity to contribute to an artistic project based on New Year’s resolutions and help in creating an amusing and reflective piece of large-scale art!

“I’m having so much fun creating this show! It’s wacky and weird but about something I feel really strongly about - how we use our time. I’ve been experimenting with innovative lighting design that will quite likely all be controlled by myself as the performer and am loving getting my hands dirty with all the spray art.” says Hannah. “My favourite thing about the show at the moment though is that, on leaving the venue, each audience member will receive their own little gift! I won’t say what it is but it is something you can use to actively improve the future for yourself and others!”

Come along to write on the chalk board, contemplate the art and enjoy the play! A fun, intimate show that will have you turning your ‘do’s’ into ‘done’s’!

22 February - 1 March (no show Sun/Tues/Thurs) 8:10pm 19 Tory Street, Te Aro, Wellington Koha Entry

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>>
