Some Strings Attached
A String of Consciousness by Mikey J WhitePresented by Mikey J White
Thu – Sat 9pm
Duration: 1 hour
NSA? There's no such string! We all have strings attached. Strings connect us - to community, to culture, to identity, to each other. They come in all shapes, sizes, lengths and colours. Each string tells a story. Each string defines us.
Stringing together surreal theatre, music, puppetry, burlesque, performance art and comedy, Mikey J White investigates the ties we form and our interconnectivity.
How long is a piece of string?
Actor, burlesque performer, theatre maker and performance artist, Mikey J White, has worked extensively throughout New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the UK amassing an impressive array of credits and awards for his work.
