Indian Ink Return to Q for A Special Live Recording
Indian Ink Theatre Company presents
KISS THE FISH
Directed by Justin Lewis / Written by Jacob Rajan & Justin Lewis

Be part of the magic, as INDIAN INK return to Q THEATRE for a special recording of their hit show KISS THE FISH this 29th & 30th August.

Sidu lives in a tropical paradise but he can’t wait to break free! In the city he could have been the next Freddie Mercury but here he’s just another rice monkey. A new resort promises life- changing riches and every village miser, entrepreneur, bride and priest is jostling for their slice of the dream. The great pretender finds himself torn between what’s best for the future with what’s right for now

Having delighted audiences around the country after a successful 6-centre tour Indian Ink, the makers of Krishnan’s Dairy and Guru of Chai, take their mischievous wit and artful storytelling to new heights with many critics saying, this is their best work yet;

"This is a show that's not to be missed" Nelson Mail
"Theatrical magic" Dominion Post
"Some of the best theatre in the world" NZ Herald

The mesmerizing Jacob Rajan (MNZM for services to theatre) is joined on stage by an ensemble of accomplished actors; Nisha Madhan (Show Pony, Shortland Street, Blue Rose), Julia Croft (The Arrival, The Kick, Agent Anna), actor/comedian James Roque(AotearoHA Next Big Things, Titus) who are joined on stage by award winning musicianDavid Ward. Under the skillful direction of Justin Lewis, they give puppetry and Balinese comic mask a riotous Indian Ink reinvention in this incredible story which was inspired by true events.

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>>
