TransTasman duo will perform ‘Literally Anything’ in New Zealand Fringe 2014

Brooks & Brown are a brand new transTasman duo who have no idea what their show is going to be about.

Christine Brooks from Wellington and Rik Brown from Melbourne had so much fun working together at the New Zealand Improvisation Festival in 2013 that they decided to make a whole show together.

The only problem is Brown lives in Melbourne and Brooks lives in Wellington so the usual preshow training will not be possible. Instead Brooks and Brown trust each other enough that they’re going to get up on stage in Fringe Festival with no script, no format and no preconceived ideas and perform ‘Literally Anything’.

“We will get on stage, look into each other’s eyes and start performing. It’s terrifying and exciting” says Brooks.

“This show will deliver 150% of your hopes multiplied by 250% of your dreams or Rik Brown will rip a hole in the space time continuum and kill Hitler. With Knitting Needles. Then he will knit each audience member a smart autumn cardigan” says Brown.

Rik Brown will be familiar to Wellington audiences from the New Zealand Improvisation Festival where he was the headlining special guest. Christine Brooks will be familiar to Wellington audiences because she lives here and is always lurking about.

Brooks & Brown in Literally Anything
Dates: 8pm, Tues 25 Feb Sat
1 Mar 2014
Venue: Gryphon Theatre
Tickets: Full $15 Concession $12 Group/Addict $10
Bookings: fringe.co.nz

“It's a tie between Christine Brooks' hilarious performances generally, and the Australian chap [Rik Brown] who did the final closing show on the Saturday night. That was the best improv show I've ever seen."

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>>
