Longevity is rare in theatre, but Indian Ink, whose latest work starts this week in Auckland, are 15 years strong, and have just been signed by a top US agent.
In the fickle world of theatre touring, there are few long-haul travellers. The risks are huge, and perseverance and resilience almost impossible to sustain. However, one little local company to have beaten the odds is Indian Ink.
It’s a remarkable achievement. For 15 years, this two-man band have produced plays that take traditional forms of mask, storytelling and Indian culture and reinvigorate them with a Kiwi twist. Audiences love them to bits; not just here – they’ve been festival darlings in Edinburgh, Australia and Asia. Now top US agent David Lieberman has signed them.
