Two short shows on contact and other existential coping mechanisms by Joseph Harper.
These are two short shows (45mins each) that I have made over the last couple of years, and am running together as a kind of ‘deluxe combo package’.
The first show is called Honey. It is about love and won the award for ‘best newcomer’ at the 2012 Fringe Festival (the real one (in Wellington)). It features kissing and earnestness and backyard astronomy and leaps of broken logic and mice and cheese and easy-going colloquial language.
The second show is called The Boy and the Bicycle. It is about depression and it won Playmarket’s Playwrights b425 Competition. It features live biking and spider-webs and muddied nostalgia and angst! angst! angst! and cellos and Sir Edmund Hillary.
They’re attempts to express what it feels like to be a person who is alive and alone and surrounded by other people and maybe feeling trepidation but is alive nonetheless. They’re shows about contact and isolation; with people and one’s self and one’s astral plane.
I really hope you can find the time to come and see one or both.
Thanks for reading,
