What's Good this Week : : Theatre & Events

One more week of the Arts Festival, an excellent week of Titus at the Pop-Up Globe – but what’s new in theatre? ATC and Silo are waiting for the noisy foreigners to go away, and the Basement is offering a week without plays. What?


Well sort of – if a definition of theatre is to watch human action for a defined time in a defined space, then 36 Questions may still fit the bill (check out our preview). They are also having a Hui (16th March) to talk about how the Basement works these days, a Pub Quiz tomorrow, what looks like a party send-off for the Snort team on Friday, and another dance on Saturday night. This is Basement turned Community Hall, and perhaps a sign that these days if you want realistic drama, watch telly; contemporary theatre is perhaps more about real, lived human connection.


Te Pou is offering some local theatre with Balls, all about a non-professional rugby team, otherwise it is back to the Arts Festival. This week provides a chance to see the 360 Allstars or La Cucina del’Arte, then there is Nixon in China, that may well star a friend of yours following their open auditions a month ago.  Students get 50% discounts on the day, so it’s worth rocking up to the ticket booth in Aotea Square ID in hand.


For the financially challenged, there is Neighbourly Day this weekend, with events all over the country including a sausage sizzle in Freyburg Square, and the International Cultural Festival in Mount Roskill on Saturday with food, arts and crafts, dance, music and football, all for free. Silo Park is showing The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou on Friday night, or chill out at the NZ Soul Alldayer on Saturday between noon and 6pm. Enjoy.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Appreciate it!

    Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody who really knows what they’re talking about
    on the net. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you are not more popular since you most certainly
    possess the gift.
