Auckland Fringe

Velcro City is a live-action cartoon following the lives of citizens in a city held together by hooks and hoops. Get set for a visual and comedic feast, with the entire set and costumes drawn in wicked Crayola felt-tips. Two time winners of ‘Best Comedy’ at the Auckland Fringe,* Eli and Hamish don onesie jumpsuits covered in Velcro strips to portray dozens of characters in the story of a city turned on its head.
