A Pair of Poets and What's the Purpose of This Project?

Wednesday 19th August 2020

Double Billing

A Pair of Poets
Two wonderful wordsmiths pair up for your pleasure, performing original poems. Musician and bush balladeer Roger Lusby joins poet and playwright Rebecca Myers to regale you with some rousing verse. While they can’t promise reason there’s sure to be rhyme, come along for a listen and have a good time.

What's the Purpose of This Project?
What's the Purpose of this Project? is a show about the universality of self-doubt. People from all walks of life gave their time, allowing us to interview them about various aspects of self-doubt. Using these interviews and a good dose of sonic storytelling, we hope to open up conversations about self-doubt and mental health more broadly within New Zealand.

Introspectively staged, we invite you to lie down (or sit, if you prefer), put on your headphones, and experience those anxious moments right before you drift off, though—we hope—with a bit more clarity, this time around.

Note: we ask that you bring your own smart device capable of connecting to the internet, and headphones to experience the work.
