Die Blaue Stunde (The Blue Hour)
8:00pm Te Auaha Theatre 13-17th February 2018
Originally from Darwin, Australia Amelia Jane Hunter now lives and loves in the land of bone structure, broad shoulders and smouldering eye contact; Berlin.
DIE BLAUE STUNDE charters the span of freedom, the hour of dreaming and the subterranean paradise of Berlin. An unstoppable adventurer and elusive chameleon, Amelia will stop at nothing in her quest to discover what she never learnt at finishing school – love, compassion and the depths of a darkroom. Riveting, ribald and completely uncensored, Amelia is a powerful storyteller with a penchant for the theatrical. Never short of a story or afraid to pepper the air blue, she is the carnival ride that should have been closed down the day Michael Jacksons' hair caught fire.
Winner of two MICF Moosehead Awards, Sydney Comedy Festival Directors Prize and nominated for Perth Fringe Comedy 2015, Amelia returns with a comedy cabaret inspired by bullet ridden basements and a backdrop of stoic pride.
'On stage she is a force of nature: aggressive, confident, in your face and opinionated. She prowls the stage like a caged animal as she tells her tales of a world that restricts such a free spirit. It's wonderful to witness her storytelling in person' Squirrel Comedy, MICF 2017
