'Issue #61: Brain Games Part Two’

Basement Theatre, AUCKLAND

Thursday 17th October | 8.30pm

Our poor wee brains get put through a lot, and sometimes they put us through a lot.

Such magical things, but sometimes it feels like they just stop playing the game, or that they’ve decided to play for the other team (rude!) or have just gone and thrown out the whole rulebook!

This October speakers Amelia Reynolds, Tatiana Hotere and Yery Cho are bringing you tales of exactly that. Three glorious stories of when their brains had a lot more on their plates than expected, and what it looked like to cope with their new situations.

Issue #61 is hosted by Alice Kirker. Alice is the co-producer of The Watercooler and Basement Theatre's 2019 Producer in Residence. She also co-founded emerging theatre company The Oddballs. Some of her most notable work includes FLAPS, Run Rabbit and Fleshies.

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional.
