North & South - - Public Trust Promotion -

As well as Vel­vet, Star­man and That Bloody Woman, there’s some pro­gramme over­lap be­tween the Christchurch Arts Fes­ti­val (Au­gust 30-Septem­ber 17) and the Taranaki Arts Fes­ti­val (Au­gust 17Septem­ber 3): from South Korea, Chef: Come Dine with Us, a high-en­ergy spoof of cook­ing re­al­ity shows; Play On, a cel­e­bra­tion of Shake­speare so­lil­o­quies from the team be­hind Fly My Pret­ties; NZ Dance Com­pany’s The Ab­sur­dity of Hu­man­ity; and Un­der­neath, a darkly comic, rich and vivid ac­count of a life lived in se­cret and a trib­ute to those liv­ing on the fringes.

Mean­while the Hawke’s Bay Art Fes­ti­val (Septem­ber 26-Oc­to­ber 8) of­fers two exclusive per­for­mances: Aus­tralian cir­cus sen­sa­tion Ca­sus with their new show Drift­wood, and comedic thriller A Pru­dent Man, as well as Pss Pss, an in­ven­tive pas de deux of mishaps and ac­ro­bat­ics in­spired by silent-film stars Chap­lin and Keaton.
