Created and Performed by Tim Carlsen. Directed by Sophie Roberts.
He lives under a by-pass.
His life fits in a trolley.
Shunting along streets around town - he is a known sight. Eat, sleep, work, play- he's got things to do and places to be. If you toured in Moko's world, his haunts, his secret places, the known bridges or quiet benches - would you find this normal?
Tim Carlsen's debut play One Day Moko will take Auckland audiences into the unvarnished world of the homeless living in urban New Zealand.
One Day Moko explores isolation, opportunity and routine - investigating how these qualities shape our everyday lives. Depicted through the cheeky, charming and churlish character of Moko: the homeless protagonist, and his interactions with a number of rich and diverse characters and environments.
With its unique incorporation of technology, One Day Moko is a visceral experience. It is a raw and inspirational story, not retreating from provocation, but demonstrating we all have a vagrant within.
"Clearly well researched, this unvarnished portrayal of homelessness is profoundly affecting....insightful." John Smythe - Theatreview.
