    Rhys Darby - Mystic Time Bird

    Darby's shows are always a mix of astute observations and stand-up cocooned in a fantastical story that takes his audience on a journey through the ridiculous to the downright silly. In Mystic Time Bird Rhys turns to the world of ancient mysticism to find answers to the world's problems. In doing so, he discovers that he was a bird in a past life, and this knowledge takes him on an unexpected path. Darby will address the big questions like “Are we truly free in this day and age or is alien technology guiding us into an even greater trap?” All this, plus weird movement and sound effects.

    Tuesday, 15th August 8pm-11pm @ Napier Municpal Theatre.
