This event has probably been and gone!
A string of gods are taking on physical form.
They are arriving for a long overdue session with a shrink.
Unpacking their experience, they are trying to process how their actions and inner worlds are manifesting in the human realm.
FLESH OF THE GODS is a psychedelic dive into world mythology, a poetic feast for the mind and senses, full to the brim with philosophy and grandiose entrances. It is the spiritual successor to Pressure Point's POTATO STAMP MEGALOMANIAC (Excellence Award for Overall Production, Auckland Theatre Awards 2016).
It is an attempt to forge a mythology that speaks to the age we live in, where the end of times can feel all too certain.
Mythic rap battles, apocalyptic relationship problems and live sound by the inimitable Dennison; you’d be a fool to miss this show.
Let’s get metaphysical.
Response to POTATO STAMP (2016):
"It’s smart, funny and delightfully inventive, and best of all it ends on a note of such unexpected, preposterous and yet soul-stirring grace, you’ll walk away feeling enlarged, grateful. Rewarded." – Simon Wilson, Metro.
