Sabrina D'Angelo - Why Do I Dream?
A physical comedy that's all in your mind.


Following a smash hit season at the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2013, Australian body-poet Sabrina D’Angelo makes her NZ Fringe Festival debut with the dazzlingly absurd physical comedy, Why Do I Dream? Described as ‘Kate Bush meets Mr Bean’, Sabrina is the dream weaver in this one woman tour de farce, combining 80’s dance, 60’s folk ballads, 90’s magic tricks and a haunting teddy bear for all ages. Why Do I Dream? was created with acclaimed UK comedy director Cal McCrystal (Mighty Boosh, Sacha Baron Cohen) and plays at the Fringe Bar for four nights only.

Enter a bizarre old-gold world where bears and bum-worms burst forth like hot-air buffoons.
Why Do I Dream? sees Sabrina unlocking a Pandora's Bumbag of characters - you'll meet a tragic magician, a trash fashion model, a low rent Madame Bovary and a high rent chimp. Why Do I Dream? is the story of her life (and the life of her story).

Why Do I Dream?
Is the result of the Australia Council’s JUMP Mentorship grant. Sabrina travelled to the UK to work intensively with renowned comedy director Cal McCrystal, whose credits include the forthcoming Spiderman movie and the West End smash One Man, Two Guvnors. Sabrina made waves at Melbourne International Comedy Festival with her debut physical comedy Body Poet, directed by The Bedroom Philosopher. She joins the new wave of alternative physical comedy, along with the likes of award-winning Dr. Brown and Slow Clap.

Sabrina’s previous works include Body Poet, directed by the Bedroom Philosopher and presented at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013, We Are Happy (Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012) and Fin (Melbourne Fringe Festival 2010). She is an alumna of Victorian College of the Art’s Puppetry program and is thrilled to be part of the growing movement of physical comedy and alternative female performers.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
