Talk about putting your body on the line for art! During one of their physically demanding rehearsals, The Wind Speaks to Wellington
cast member Hannah Clarke, broke her foot.
But the show must go on, and the cast are having fun writing the bandage into the script (I'm so looking forward to
seeing that!). The Wind Speaks to Wellington
opens tomorrow night (Tues 27 Nov) at 6:30pm.

Have Yourself an Alternative Little Christmas
If you dread all of the consumerism and fake-snow-on-shop-windows that goes along with Christmas, why not try something
a little different?
Here are some ideas:
- Use recycled paper to wrap your pressies, or even newspaper.
- Buy someone an online music download voucher - no wrapping paper or transport costs!
- Have a 'buy nothing'
- Vouchers for goods and services (like massages, music, clothes, theatre shows etc) are only one piece of paper and
they allow you to support local bands, designers, shops, venues etc.
- When everyone asks you what you want for Christmas, tell them to take whatever they want to spend on you and give it
to a charity of your choice.
- Buy second hand goods! A nice vintage dress, retro crockery and all sorts can be found at your local op-shop, trash palace
or David N White Gallery
- One of my friends figured out the perfect price ceiling for gifts. She spends no more than $12.50 per person, which is
enough to get something useful and personalised without going overboard.
Here's a few websites that might help in your quest for an ethical, anti-consumerist Christmas.
To book for any performance at BATS simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, number of tickets and date you wish to attend. We will reply to confirm your booking and you can pay
when you come to the show. Splendid!
