Next weekend marks the start of the Manawatu Festival of New Arts 2010. The theme for this year is “Back to Earth” and the programme features the prize-winning plays and poems from the competition that was run earlier this year. My poem ‘Crunch’ was placed third in the competition and will be performed as part of the programme next Saturday 2nd October, Thursday 7th October and Saturday 9th October.
There are two different programmes at weekends (ie you will need to go on both days to see everything) and the same material is rearranged into three programmes for performance at Square Edge during the week. The programmes for Saturday and Sunday will last 90 minutes to 2 hours each and will be identical at both Massey and at the Globe Theatre.
