Confusing, Great acting, Quirky, Ambitious, Disappointing

See it if you would like exposure to New Zealand performance art-here a solo show by a young artist singing, story-telling, dancing and making sounds

Don't see it if you want a truly comprehensible story-this is 6 vignettes that pass quickly and may not be all understandable. Introduction hard to hear.

Clever, Ambitious, Quirky, Confusing, Original

See it if Kiwi mult-role solo w/ interp movement. "All the passages roll by." Heartbeats, gulls, and waves are vocalised and then repeated in playback

Don't see it if Age and gender roles are indistinct and only 45 min. "What determines becoming you?" Better in vocal manipulation than actual recitation. Read more
