Pup­petry and masks fea­ture in witty sto­ry­telling

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

In­dian Ink, the theatre com­pany known for its use of masks, has a pro­duc­tion at Q Theatre later this month.

The mak­ers of Krishnan’s Di­ary and Guru of Chai are bring­ing their wit and sto­ry­telling skills back to Auck­land.

Kiss the Fish is writ­ten by Ja­cob Ra­jan and Justin Lewis and is at Q for just two per­for­mances on Au­gust 29 and 30 at 7.30pm.

The story fol­lows Sidu, who lives in a trop­i­cal par­adise but can’t wait to be free.

In the city he could have been the next Fred­die Mer­cury.

A new re­sort prom­ises lifechang­ing riches and ev­ery vil­lage miser, en­trepreneur, bride and priest is jostling for their slice of the dream.

The great pre­tender finds him­self torn be­tween what’s best for the fu­ture with what’s right for now.

The play has al­ready toured the coun­try to ex­cel­lent re­views.

Ja­cob Ra­jan is joined on stage by Nisha Mad­han, Ju­lia Croft, James Roque and mu­si­cian David Ward.

Un­der the di­rec­tion of Justin Lewis the play­ers use pup­petry and Ba­li­nese comic mask to present this story which was in­spired by true events.
