I have been programmed to perform my first ever solo show, (A
Smidge of) Pidge, at the curated Fringe Hub in the Melbourne Fringe
Festival in September this year.
To get to Melbourne I need help paying for flights for myself
and a technical operator and also with Venue fees and Marketing
costs. To help myself, I have applied for Creative New Zealand
funding (fingers crossed) and am doing a fundraiser performance at
the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre on the 12th of August
About the show:
Sherilee Kahui (NZ) stars in this one woman show about the
existential dread we all feel from time to time. It asks the hard
questions, such as: "Am I doing the right thing with my life?",
"Why do embarrassing things always happen to me?" and "Why does
everyone hate pigeons?"
(A Smidge of) Pidge is a black comedy about identity and the
anxiety that is inextricably tied to it. It fuses clowning, song
and dance to show the myriad ways in which we are all
simultaneously the same and very different, using comedy to
ultimately celebrate the absurdity of it all.
What people are saying about (A Smidge of) Pidge:
"…you remind me of a kiwi version of Lena Dunham"
"…inventive use of space, skilled performance that is both
focussed and casual, eclectic material and a fun atmosphere." -
