NZ Herald Review

Let’s be honest: Being an adult involves far too many rules. People are a strange and wonderful bunch so you’re going to need to know how to deal with them. The prospect of human interaction is terrifying. But don’t you worry. You just sit there. We’ll do all the dancing and talking and stuff.

“…an incredibly well developed and mature concept… for somebody so young… Clark’s talent across a range of mediums is manifest…” – Kate Sullivan, Theatreview

"...an assured, polished production ... beautifully executed." – NZ Herald.

The audience quickly becomes fully engaged by the work, charmed and challenged by the mix of self-reflection and revelation threaded by wit and whimsy, and leave the theatre with much to think about.

Nominated at the 2012 Dunedin Fringe Festival for 'Best Dance', Black Sheep Productions returns to the 2013 Fringe with their new full-length choreography. "How To Make Friends and Still Appear Normal", which received glowing reviews at The Body Festival in Christchurch, features an original and “stunningly compatible” soundtrack from Wellington composer Emi Pogoni.

Set in a bizarre and restless urban world, the protagonist recounts the certainty of childhood and figures out how to deal with ‘adult people’.

“… raw, evocative and humble …” – The Press

“… endearing … poignant … funny … a thoughtful choreography” – Linda Ashley, Theatreview

Parental guidance is recommended for under 14 years.

Tickets available February 7. Dunedin Fringe Festival runs 14 to 24 March 2013. For more information visit the website above.

How To Make Friends and Still Appear Normal is supported by Dunedin Fringe Festival funding via Creative New Zealand.
