Theatre in Aotearoa

Same Same But Different

Saturday 10 February, 11am

Sir Paul Reeves Building  Room WG126, AUT City Campus, 2 Governor Fitzroy Place, Auckland City

Theatre in Aotearoa is crowded with queer talent. Does our understanding of role-playing inform performance on the stage, in presenting façades, in hiding in plain sight, and revealing a truth under the burn of the spotlight?

Three writer/performers, including theatre legend Renée, talk about entertaining the public, changing people’s perceptions, role-playing and telling stories that open up understanding. But is there a line you cannot cross?

Renée is joined by Snapchat dude, playwright and underground maverick Tom Sainsbury and the wonderful Madeleine Sami, renowned for her versatility in assuming different characters, races and genders.

Chaired by writer, actor and talent scout Andrea Kelland.
