ROSS KEMP - Extreme Tales Live On Stage - in Auckland this week

Ross Kemp touches down in New Zealand this week for Extreme Tales: Live On Stage.

The documentary maker, author and actor will reveal the truth about how the extreme world works, delivering insights into the 73 documentaries that he has made with his team across the world in the last 15 years.

There are still limited tickets to Kemp’s show at Logan Campbell Centre in Auckland onFebruary 17.

Get tickets from www.theticketfairy.com

Kemp’s award-winning documentaries examine some of the most extreme situations that exist on our planet and analyse who we are and why we do the things we do. Driven by a sense of social justice, Kemp and his team have risked their lives to make these documentaries and have never shied away from asking the difficult questions.

Through his landmark TV series Extreme World, which has been broadcast on British TV since 2011 and is seen on BBC Knowledge on SKY Television in New Zealand, Kemp is a true voice who explains how our world is mapped with conflict, ranging from war to trafficking, drugs, violence and suffering.

Kemp will talk openly about how he became a documentary maker after meeting a member of the infamous American ‘Bloods’ who had been shot more than 20 times. This led him to make documentaries about gangs from El Salvador to East Timor and from Moscow to South Africa. From witnessing the tribal violence in Kenya to the Democratic Republic of Congo and reporting on the frontline in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan,Kemp and his team have spent time in some of the most dangerous places on the planet.

Revealing our troubled world on stage, Kemp will deliver the stories, the heroes, the villains and the bravery of ordinary people in extraordinary situations – and the humour that bonds us all together.

For the first time live ever, Kemp will deliver highlights from his back catalogue and his personal story of how an actor carved a new career in a world where there are no scripts.

You’ll also have the chance to talk directly to Kemp about his experiences and what makes him tick in an audience Q&A.

The show is presented by Neptune Entertainment, Matt Van Rooy, BBC Worldwide and Andrew Kay.
