Like watching paint dry?

20 Sep 2018

How many times have you rolled your eyes and complained: “it’s like watching paint dry”.

Auckland-based theatre company The Rebel Alliance have created a mesmerising, sometimes absurd, sometimes moving, show about how much is actually happening while paint is drying.

The one-man show is part performance and part installation, examining our relationship with time and colour and the difficulty of doing nothing, while designer and performer Sean Lynch watches the Resene paint dry.

You can catch Watching Paint Dry in Auckland at The Basement on September 25 and 26, Whangarei at OneOneSix September 28 and 29 and then at Allen Hall in Dunedin on November 1-3.
