Our Own Little Mess is a genre-bending live performance and immersive audio adventure. 

Follow the sprawling and seemingly unconnected lives of five characters as they navigate life’s big mysteries, from Wellington and Auckland to New York and Beijing, from the mundane to the unknowable. Wearing headphones, you’ll connect in with performance on a whole new level through music, snippets of podcasts, narration and glimpses into the inner consciousness of the characters. 

Inspired by novelist Haruki Murakami (The Wind-up Bird Chronicles) and filmmakers, the Daniels (Everything, Everywhere, All at Once), this existential mystery-comedy-thriller collides multiple realities in magical ways.  

Renowned for their shapeshifting works, award winning theatre company A Slightly Isolated Dog return to Wellington for this world premiere, co-directed by Leo Gene Peters and Jane Yonge, featuring original soundtrack by Dr Jeremy Mayall and a stellar cast. 

The development of Our Own Little Mess was supported by Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts. 

Ko Our Own Little Mess tēnei, he whakaaturanga mataora, he mea whakawhiwhiti ā-oro ki te hunga mātakitaki, kia haere ngātahi ai tātou me ngā kaiwhakaari. Tokorima rātou, nō Pōneke ētehi, nō Tāmaki ētehi. Whāia rātou nō rātou e kimi ana i te ora i ngā tiriti o Te Āporo Nui, me Peihinga.  

Whakamaua ō pokitaringa, ā ka hono ai ki ngā kaiwhakaari nei i tētehi taumata rerekē, he waiata, he puoro, he punua paoho, he whakatakinga kōrero, kia kitea, kia rangona ai ō rātou kare ā roto.
