Culture Clash and Auckland Fringe present:
A story of love, loss and a little bit of wackiness.
A new exhibition has come to town: “The Museum of Broken Relationships” from Zagreb. Pedro, the town’s museum archivist is heartbroken from the sudden death of his beloved wife. Eclipsed by the moon, we follow Pedro crossing from his loss to a new life, with help from the provocative and wild museum workers. ‘Moonbridge’ entwines fantasy & reality as exhibits become real and stories from the ancient and near past, that thrust Pedro into historical encounters that propel him back to life, love and the moon.
“Are we lost in translation or inspired by intercultural connections?”
Supported by Creative New Zealand and Foundation North, Culture Clash has been a wonderful yearlong development and mentoring performance programme that has developed skills while challenging participants in a supportive, fun and creative atmosphere. It has provided a platform where different cultures can express their individual perspectives through the performing arts through sharing, gaining knowledge and collaborating in a safe, creative space, guided by established leading performing arts professionals. This year long programme, has culminated in the creation of culturally unique and dynamic show ‘MOONBRIDGE’, presented in the 2017 Auckland Fringe Festival.
“Culture Clash is important to me because people in the real world try to force you in a box – Culture Clash encourages me to get out of it… it brings cultures together under the one purpose built, buzzing, performing arts facility – TAPAC.” – Tui Peterson (Trainee Stage Manager)
“Culture clash connects creative people. It is a necessary platform for artists and frustrated artists alike to put ourselves out there, have fun, and tell stories that would definitely enrich the soul and warm the yearning migrant hearts.” – Donna Rhyse Dacuno (Culture Clash performer/production assistant)
"Culture Clash is the highlight of my week." Dhruv Mody (Culture Clash performer)
