A one woman show about the existential dread we all feel from time to time. It asks the hard questions, such as am I doing the right thing with my life? Why do embarrassing things always happen to me? And why does everyone hate pigeons?

(A Smidge of) Pidge is a black comedy about identity and the anxiety that is inextricably tied to it. It has a non-linear narrative, focusing more on thematic exploration than a traditional Western-style storyline. It fuses clowning, direct address, song and dance to show the myriad ways in which we are all simultaneously the same and very different, using comedy to ultimately celebrate the absurdity of it all.

Sherilee Kahui (Taranaki, Ngāti Haupoto) has been creating and presenting work in New Zealand and abroad since 2006. She graduated from Victoria University of Wellington and Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School in 2015 with a Master's degree in Theatre Arts (Directing). Since graduating she has directed for KidzStuff Theatre for Children as well as produced and designed for the award winning collective Hank of Thread (Kaitiaki, Receiver), which she co-founded in 2013.

One of the main drivers for the creation of (A Smidge of) Pidge is to investigate the relationship between the one and the many and the different ways that the cultures that make up Aotearoa New Zealand navigate those relationships.
