The polyester/labcoat clad investigative scienticians from Did I Believe It claim to have been helping you—yes you—think for almost 42 years. And, in what could be seen as New Zealand’s slightly more alcoholic answer to Look Around You, the visionary Silo theatre and the visionary 42 Below have joined forces to bring you a perfect theatrical/commercial muddle that aims to disseminate the silly, mad and historic facts about vodka. Ah, can you smell that? It’s art and commerce colliding. But not only are they helping you think, they’re also helping you win things. So in the spirit of weird, comical science edu-tainment that can be seen on the trailer here or the play’s Facetube page here, just come up with a completely nonsensical science-related question you would like answered and the weirdest effort will get one double pass to the show on Sunday 10 April. We’ve also got four very cool 42 Below gift packs (‘True Encounters of the Spirit of the 42nd Parallel) to give away.
The Auckland season runs from 9–30 April at 1885 Britomart and the Wellington season runs from 3-12 May at Foxglove’s Queens Wharf Ballroom. Tickets through www.ticketmaster.co.nz or at Real Groovy. The show is R18.
