The Fringe Festival Is Here!

 There are so many fantastic shows/events to explore! Here are a couple that are bringing our team some excitement.

BREAKFAST TIME

BRICK HAUS PRODUCTIONS

Define family for me. Seriously. Because, I’m struggling to sum it up.
Family is... a weird word. Especially when you say it five times. Family family family family family. You can forget what it even means.
Flour and water makes dough, hot water and a tea bag makes tea, cheese and crackers makes - cheese, and crackers.
But one family mixing with another - look, some ingredients just don’t go well together. Breakfast Time is a project using multiple media, where you are invited to watch a short film depicting a newly blended family, as two step siblings cook breakfast the morning after a hasty wedding. Immediately following the film, you are swept into a highly abstract and analytical deconstruction of the world and characters you just saw, as breakfast is cooked once again. Exploring themes of family, food, class, and the human thought process, while employing post-dramatic techniques alongside poetic monologue, duologue, and commentary - Breakfast Time is food for thought.

 

LET'S DRAG IT UP, FRINGE!

KELLY FORNIA PRODUCTIONS

When the world is a drag, be a drag performer! Wellington is thriving with incredible local drag artists and we're bringing them to Aotearoa's biggest arts festival with an even bigger spotlight.

Let's Drag it up, Fringe! is a 4 night show taking place on each Friday night over the course of the Fringe Festival, with a completely different theme and line up of drag performers on each night! Wellington's drag performers are so diverse, it only makes sense to have multiple drag shows to showcase the variety of talent our capital has to offer!
