Bare by Toa Fraser
Fresh from graduating a performing arts degree, Taupo native Taylor Griffin returns at the head of his own theatre company Simple Truth Theatre, bringing Toa Frasers award winning BARE to Centrestage for a one night only performance as part of their North Island Tour.
In 1998 Toa Frasers Bare made an impact on the arts scene within New Zealand. It’s a classic kiwi comedy with a hilarious matrix of urban poetry and streetwise lip. 2 Actors – 24 characters rap and riff on body image, films, takeaway food, graffiti and English literature. This contemporary classic has earned its place as an Icon of New Zealand theatre and is even being taught around the country as part of the Drama and English curriculum. It’s a piece involving several different monologues with a wide variety of voices, caricatures, themes and relationships. The two actors take us on a journey through a range of personalities from late 90’s NZ. Gym babes, Skater chicks, Burger King Employees and Shakespeare. Let us take you on a trip down memory lane and experience clashing cultures in this classic New Zealand work.
