Almost flawless - Adam NZ Play Awards Panel

Everybody fails, sometimes spectacularly. But not everyone has the courage to tell the world about it.

Gravity & Grace is a smart new production by Bruce Mason Playwriting Award-winning duo Eleanor Bishop and Karin McCracken based on a thrilling autobiographical fiction by acclaimed feminist writer Chris Kraus.

Brimming with intellect, humour and rich visuals, the show follows Kraus through the production of an ill-fated film in Auckland in the 90s, her bold move to punk New York in the 70s, and to a disastrous appearance at a Berlin film market. Along the way, she has encounters with some of the greatest artists and philosophers of the 20th century.

See this daring, fiercely funny and captivating production at its world premiere this Festival.

The development of Gravity & Grace was supported by Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts and Auckland Arts Festival.

There is a post-show talk on Saturday 9 March.

There is a Choose Your Price Kōwhiria Tō Utu session on Sunday 10 March at 2pm. Book here.
