Indian Ink Return to Q for A Special Live Recording


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.

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.

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:

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>>
