Jude Perl

Jude Perl’s Greatest Hits: So Fresh Spring 2020
Streams 26, 27, 28 November, 9.30pm

Fusing her award winning songwriting with hilarious storytelling, endearing social commentary with musical absurdity, Jude Perl performs as many of her mental health bangers that she can fit into one hour. Having established themselves as a comedian who presents “hilarious and painfully spot on observations” (The Plus Ones) mixed with undeniably catchy songs, Jude Perl discusses everything from share house living to school crushes to stomach issues to meerkats. A fun celebration of stream of consciousness lyrics with extravagant awkwardness.

Jude has written and performed 5 solo comedy shows since 2015. She performed a trial run of her 6th solo show 'Puffy Jacket' to an audience of 15 people 2 days before comedy festival was cancelled, and is looking forward to performing to a live audience again once she has completed every single jigsaw puzzle in the southern hemisphere.

RECKONING “Te Waiata Paihere Wairua - The Sounds of Woven Souls”
Streams 26 & 27 November 6pm, 28 & 29 November 4pm & 6pm

Reckoning is about reclaiming our power.
Reconnecting with and rediscovering our Ancestry.
Rediscovery of our indigenous blood lines.
Reclamation of the parts of ourselves we’ve forgotten and been made to forget.

A cross cultural, multi artform performance work which fuses Indigenous cultures from Aotearoa, New Zealand and Te Whēnua Moemoeā (Land of the Dreamtime) Australia. Six diverse artists, Samuel Gaskin, Candace Lorrae, Kristel Kickett(The Merindas), Piri Neho, Paula Barbee & Mahana Maihi-Taniora will combine personal stories of their ancestors with original songwriting which explores the power of connecting to their indigenous bloodlines.

Reckoning began as an exploration into what may happen if we merged indigenous language and culture from Aus & NZ with sound healing and a pop music producer.

It quickly turned into something much more powerful.

Our entire cast & creative team is BIPOC, FEMALE or Queer - some of us tick more than one of those diversity boxes.
