Preview: Some shows on at BATS Theatre this week
Featuring lead vocalist Moana Ete, and accompanied by the rhythm section of Slade Butler and Marcus Gurtner A Girl Named Mo debuted ‘Mud & Stardust‘ during Fly my Pretties’ August shows. A cool mix of R&B + electronic and one of the prettiest songs I’ve listened to for a while.
Each performance will be recorded live, with the recordings to be released as a live album in December.

A black comedy about a real life fight with depression, performed by multiple award-winning actor, Rob Mokaraka. It’s a mix of stand-up comedy, expert dance moves, mime and puppetry. The show discusses Mokaraka’s experience with depression, suicide and hope, so please take this into consideration when you go. It’s entertaining and educational. (It left me ugly crying in my seat while everyone else was on their feet for a standing ovation so your mileage may vary.)
There’s a forum after the show and I encourage you to stay for it to share your stories, listen to others, and support each other.
The team are also doing KAI FOR CASH: Bring a homemade kai to share with the audience and see the show for free! Limit of ten free tickets per show so get in quick.
