Apples and Snakes present
Real Fake White Dirt and The Cobbler of Kerala
in association with Printable Reality
Real Fake White Dirt is the latest theatre piece by innovative Kiwi artist Jess Holly Bates.
What does it mean to be Pakeha (that's white to me and you) in New Zealand? Where do you draw the line between pride and embarrassment? How do we put the fun back into colonial guilt? This is a multi-voiced, multi-faceted piece that throws a gauntlet at the feet of suburban complacency – and it's not just about New Zealand, it's about being human in the early 21st century. It's funny, it's moving, and it's going to the Edinburgh Fringe in August. Sneak a preview tonight!
Meanwhile, all is not well with The Cobbler of Kerala.
This new scratch show from London poet Clair Whitefield takes us from the Ganges to Camden, from tragedy to a place where eyes meet over newly-repaired soles and the world is all ghee and coriander. An examination of loss, healing, martial arts and those strange cards you find in phone-boxes. Poetry for people who don't like poetry. And those that do, obviously.
