Pick of the Fringe by Candlelight
…well the stage itself will be lit up like a Christmas tree but the bar and exteriors will be lit by candles for Earth Hour.
Saturday is the closing night for Pick of the Fringe at Downstage, if the whirl of Fringe and the New Zealand International Arts Festival has passed you by this year you can still catch two outstanding shows at Downstage.
Theatre is an experience to be shared and both shows on offer are really accessible as well as being ‘Fringe’, so you could take you sister or your boyfriend or your work colleague. You can see both shows for $40 which is very reasonable.
back/words is a piece of documentary theatre with performances that focus on being completely faithful to the source of the story. The source being in this case, filmed interviews with people that have been loosely framed around important ‘firsts’. Out of hours and hours of footage they have shaped a theatre length show full of humor and emotion.
